Police monitoring UCT students

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Police have been keeping an eye on a small group of protesting students entering various buildings on the UCT Upper campus.

Last week volatile situations played out at the University with a group of students protesting against an 8% fee increase. They are also demanding the release of a fee report commissioned by Higher Education ministry.

The university was granted a high court interdict last week to prevent unlawful protests.

Police have warned a small group of protesting students that they are in violation of a court interdict, which prohibits them from causing interruptions to campus activity. They have been roaming around campus with police and university private security following their every move.

At one point the group entered the humanities building, picketing down the corridors.  The students have since dispersed, with security and police still remaining vigilant.
