Lecturers and postgraduate students at the University of Johannesburg marched in support of FeesMustFall movement. Their support for FeesMustFall was sparked by their academic research findings that South Africa’s Gross Domestic Product percentage used on Higher Education is relatively smaller than other countries in the world.
Earlier today at the University of Johannesburg Soweto Campus, more than fifteen students were arrested, following the FeesMustFall movement.
Peaceful students at DFC who began to mobilize other students who were in classes, faced a dead end when the Fidelity Security (bouncers) physically stopped them from doing so. It was a hard job, if not impossible for the bouncers to disperse the students. The bouncers then took a chemical resort, to pepper spray the students. The students perceived these deeds as provocative, which caused anger that led to a war of stones when students threw stones at the bouncers.
Limpopo Police confirmed today that the universities security personnel had fired rubber bullets at protesting students at the University of Limpopo last night. At first it was alleged that two students had been killed and that was the message that was spread around amongst students on social media.
Students were beaten and one being stabbed in his ankle by bouncers today around 18;30 p.m. after police had left the premises.
