Normal classes have resumed at Goroka University in Papua new Guinea after students went on a rampage on the campus this week after staff walked off their jobs.
Staff walked off their jobs this week demanding the removal of the vice-chancellor Dr David Rawlence.
However students set fire to a house and overturned rubbish bins on campus, saying the strike was depirving them of their right to an education.
However, non-academic staff union representative, Makalai Biell, says staff have returned to work, havng given the petition demanding the removal of the vice-chancellor to the Chancellor and the Minister for Higher Education.
"The students are happy that we have allowed an agreement to be reached with the chancellor and the minister yesterday to return to class and to normal work today which has resumed. Everybody's happy and classes are going on, and staff are back at work. And we'll wait another 48 hours for a response to our petition by the chancellor and the minister.'"
