CAPE TOWN - The University of Cape Town (UCT)'s Rhodes Must Fall movement is locked in a meeting this evening to discuss whether to vacate the Bremner building which they've occupied since the start of protests calling for the removal of a statue of Cecil John Rhodes from the campus over a month ago.

The statue was finally removed last Thursday.

WATCH: Defiant UCT students vow Rhodes Must Fall is just the beginning.

Yesterday Vice Chancellor Max Price confirmed the university has served the students with an eviction notice.

The student who started the protests at UCT, Chumani Maxwele says they are still occupying the Bremner building because the removal of the statue is but one issue which they want addressed as part of calls for broader transformation at the institution.

"We hope by the end of the night or by midnight we will be out of the place. We met him yesterday and this morning to agree on what he can do and what he can't do."
