Is Unisa doing away with Afrikaans?

Rumours and emails from various quarters seem to indicate that Unisa isn't offering various subjects in Afrikaans due to a lack of students. An email received by a student from Unisa regarding ADL2601 reads as follows:

"Please note that this is one of the modules approved by Senate that it be offered in English only with effect from 2013. This was due to the low number of students who preferred to do it in Afrikaans."

In addition, Afrikaans is not available when selecting the language option for various subjects with English being the only available option.This might however just be a technical glitch with registration, as Unisa has been having quite a few of those in the last few days.
What does this mean for students who started their studies in Afrikaans and who now have to either complete them in English or give up their studies?
