Pretoria – Unisa has embarked on a self-defence initiative for its female students that includes providing them with pepper spray.

Unisa’s Dr Marcia Socikwa said there would be a roll-out of the self- defence initiative at the university’s campuses across the country before final exams started.

“We will distribute the canisters before exams start because students have to stay on campus for long hours and leave late.

“Attacks happen as soon as they leave campus to catch transport.

“We don’t want to be irresponsible and just give them out without showing the students how to use them,” she told the Pretoria News.
