It’s understood that the disgruntled workers want permanent postings.
The university’s management said that it had since roped in the police and would lay criminal charges against the intruders.
UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola said: “Due to the importance of securing the exam venues as well as protecting the rights of students to complete their mid-year exams in a conducive environment and the fact that the individuals causing the disruptions were neither staff nor students at UCT, in terms of its processes, UCT requested the SAPS to come onto our campus.”
