PRETORIA - Student groups have called for calm at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) after the destruction of property at the Soshanguve campus.

A student was shot dead on Thursday night allegedly by police leading to the unrest.

Students say they are preparing a memorandum for police management. Student groups are now locked in a meeting at the Soshanguve campus.

The youth league’s Vongani Chauke says they want answers.

“Police did use live ammunition there; we saw it - all of us - and it is was very wrong.”

The Pan Africanist Student Movement of Azania’s Nana Dladla said: “How could the police come with real bullets within our campus? And it’s not like we were vandalising [property].”

All operations at the Tshwane south and north campuses have been brought to a standstill.
