JOHANNESBURG - Wits University students are meeting privately this afternoon to discuss the events from the Union Buildings yesterday.

They were among those who marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria demanding that high tertiary education fees be scrapped.

The nationwide Fees Must Fall campaign began at Wits a week and a half ago with students rejecting a 10,5 percent increase in fees for 2016.

The main campus is quite today after more than a week of protests from Wits students.

They are locked in talks behind closed doors as they debrief following yesterday chaos at the Union Buildings.

Some of the buses leaving the Union Buildings were targeted by angry protesters as they left the lawns during clashes with police.

The SRC is leading the talks and will also be negotiating with management of the university to reach an agreement on how best to move forward with the exam timetable.

Other students on campus are preparing for the exams which are due to start next week.
