UCT vice chancellor pelted with plastic bottles, food
About 100 students brought a Senate meeting to an abrupt halt.
CAPE TOWN - University of Cape Town (UCT) vice chancellor Max Price was on Monday pelted with plastic bottles and food as protesting students disrupted a Senate meeting on campus.
About 100 students under the banners of the Fees Must Fall and Rhodes Must Fall campaigns brought the meeting to an abrupt halt.
SRC member Rorisang Moseli was at the meeting.
"The purpose of the meeting was to fill in staff on the events has happened over the last several weeks and how the vice chancellor would move it forward. The meeting was centred around a briefing by the vice chancellor."
Many students are not letting up as they push ahead with demonstrations over a host of issues.
Earlier on Monday, students from Cape Town universities marched on the legislature as part of their ongoing fight for an end to outsourcing and the financial exclusion of poor students.
UCT student leader Athabile Nonxuba said they wanted to meet with the president and the higher education minister.
"We also want the minister of labour to account to us in terms of insourcing."
