Wits to review videos to catch those who disrupt lectures
Wits says about 500 law students were affected yesterday after protesting students disrupted exams
JOHANNESBURG - Wits University says it will be reviewing its camera footage after protesters attempted to disrupt classes and tests at its campuses and it's warned it will act against those responsible.
The institution says about 500 law students were affected yesterday after protesting students disrupted exams, using fire crackers.
The incidents resulted in the arrests of at least four students.
The university has been hit by #FeesMustFall protests for nearly a month now.
On Thursday, student leader Shaeera Kalla was hit by 13 rubber bullets when police tried to disperse demonstrators who were trying to access the great hall.
Wits spokesperson Shirona Patel said, "This is a direct violation of those students who want to learn and work. People are desperate to prepare for the exams and get through the year."
