PRETORIA – The fight against tuition fee hikes at South African universities culminated at the seat of power in Pretoria.

Hundreds of students toyi-toyied as they awaited busses to take them to Union Buildings where President Jacob Zuma met university heads and student leaders.

The #FeesMustFall protests begant at Wits University on October 8 and quickly spread to other universities across the country.

Students remained defiant in spite of arrests and court interdicts secured by their own institutions.
