JOHANNESBURG - Ten more students have been arrested at the University of the Free State (UFS) for contravening a court interdict blocking protests at the Bloemfontein campus.
Earlier, the SRC confirmed that 22 students were apprehended for their involvement in the Fees Must Fall protests.
Classes at the university resumed this morning after a nearly two-week long recess, but clashes broke out between a group of students and police.
The university is expected to hold a general assembly later this week to allow students, staff and management to engage on the students' grievances.
UFS SRC president Lindokuhle Ntuli said, "Students are being sabotaged, these are peaceful students who have been protesting very peacefully for the last two weeks. The students at the UFS have not even broken a door or a window for the last two weeks."
Meanwhile, 11 University of KwaZulu-Natal students arrested for their involvement in protests at the Pietermaritzburg campus have been remanded in custody until their next court appearance on Thursday.
