UCT students warn of more protests


CAPE TOWN – The #FeesMustFall movement says protest action is likely to continue at the University of Cape Town (UCT) tomorrow.

Students will gather at a meeting tonight where they're set to discuss their strategy and plans for the week ahead.

Violent protests have erupted at university campuses across the country over the past few weeks, with students demanding free, decolonised education at universities.

UCT student Leader Sinawo Thambo says students will be meeting tonight to decide their next move.

“It will be around events of the past week, drafting a statement to the institution and how students have been brutalised by private security.”
