  • EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) October 22, 2015 A small group of students have started demonstrating here at UJ's Kingsway campus saying they want to close the university today in solidarity with other tertiary institutions across the country.

This protest coincides with UJ's SRC elections, but the students say it's time that they too take a stand against fee increases.
