UCT: uneven structures built to accommodate homeless students

The steps of Jameson Hall at UCT are once again the site of protest by angry students, this time over an alleged apparent lack of accommodation for black students.

The protest was led by the Rhodes Must Fall activist movement and saw uneven iron structures and portable toilets erected at the bottom of Jameson Hall on upper campus.

One of the Rhodes Must Fall leaders, Chumani Maxwele, told reporters that “Black students constantly struggled to secure accommodation and that if one goes to the housing queue “there is no white person there”.

Protest action still ongoing, more details to follow
