\r\n\r\nProtest action is in full swing at the University of Cape Town and marching students have brought traffic on the M3 highway to a halt.\r\n\r\nStudents are not only protesting the 2017 fees hike,  they also want the expulsion and indictment of several members of the movement.\r\n\r\nSince Monday, classes at UCT have been suspended to protect students and staff against any protest action.\r\n

\r\nMeanwhile, at Stellenbosch University, Twitter users are reporting that some classes and tests have been unofficially suspended, while the University maintains that it will not suspend academic activity.\r\n\r\nAccording to @blak_terrorist, security and staff have assaulted students.\r\n

\r\n\r\n\r\nSAPS have arrested several students for blocking the entrance to the Braamfontein campus. Management has said the academic programme and all activities will continue as planned today, despite the protests.\r\n
Wits SRS outgoing president Nompendule Mkhatshwa says she is disappointed: “They’ve been extremely militant towards us by arresting 18 of our students from Mens Res [Male Residence] for barricading the Empire Road gate, something we did last year that we were able to resolve very well. Then, the police understood that we were not causing any harm to the university.”
\r\nA student at Wits, who was also assaulted, said he was merely observing the protest (See video below).\r\n
