UWC and CPUT students held both campuses in cessation

The University of the Western Cape protesters arrested this week are complaining their bail conditions are unfair.

As part of the bail conditions students are not allowed onto the UWC campus while the case is pending, and if they want to write exams, special arrangements need to be made to write at a different venue.  

Meanwhile, at the Sister Campus CPUT Bellville a number of students have been rushed to a near-by hospital for treatment.

This is after the protesting students clashed with the police today, and police using rubber bullets and teargas to disperse the crowd.

Busisiwe Makeleni, a leader of the FeesMustFall campaign in CPUT says, she is one of the victims who was short in the face by police. Makeleni explains…….

Police were given a directive to shoot any other situation no matter what is happening. CPUT Cape Town students were arriving in Bellville Campus and got shot, I was one of them, I got shot on my face by a rubber bullet while we were trying to engage with the police.
She added that “Sadly we have 26 students arrested right now and we trying to take them out so that we can discuss the way forward. Right now we are camping at the institution and waiting for any feedback from the guys that are arrested. No movement on campus at the moment, we are waiting.”

Both University management could not be reached for comment
