JOHANNESBURG – The situation at the University of Stellenbosch remained tense on Friday as students moved from one residence to another to drum up support for the fees protest.

Earlier in the day they tried to enter a building where other students were writing tests.

 

 

Police and private security personnel are monitoring the situation.

Staff have been told to leave the university by order of management and many buildings on campus have been locked.

Last week, students staged a sit-in against proposed fee increases and were involved in a scuffle with private security guards.
