The University of the Western Cape  has submitted an affidavit in support of a bail application by 25 students who were arrested last week.

The students are expected to make another appearance later this week to apply for bail in the Bellville Magistrates court.

They were taken into custody during chaotic protests against fee hikes. The University of the Western Cape has requested that the National Prosecuting Authority speeds up the processing of the arrested students' bail hearing.

UWC spokesperson Luthando Tyhalibongo confirmed management’s support for bail being granted to the arrested students.
