Student protest

PRETORIA - Students at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) on Thursday gathered outside the main building to voice their grievances with the institution.

Last week, students from the Soshanguve campus started protesting and reportedly disrupted classes.

They are demanding a better education and leniency for students who cannot afford their fees.

Some students were also allegedly forced to join in the demonstration.

Protesters sang songs and danced while they waited for a response from management after handing over a memorandum.

TUT Vice-Chancellor Nthabiseng Ogude received the document.

Police are patrolling the Pretoria campus.

Varsity officials said they will take action against those who vandalised property.
