Sewage hurled at UCT buildings


Cape Town, 6 February 2016 - Another UCT student has been attacked and raped by a suspected serial rapist. It's the fourth incident in the same area since December.

CAPE TOWN - Clean up efforts were underway on Wednesday after an unidentified group threw sewage at five University of Cape Town (UCT) buildings in the early hours of the morning.

A statement issued by the university said the group spilled sewage on buildings on Upper Campus: Robert Leslie Social Science; Robert Leslie Commerce; Menzies; Beattie and the Chemical Engineering Building.

“Cleaning staff are removing the mess this morning. It is regrettable that this action of a few people is putting an extra burden on cleaning and security staff as well as creating a health hazard for anyone who enters these buildings. It also interferes with those who come onto campus for educational and research purposes,” said the statement.

Security has been increased at the campus.

“UCT’s first priority is the safety and security of students and staff members, and to ensure that the campus is operational,” said UCT.
