The University of Cape Town says police have arrested four students who were transporting sewage containers to the campus.
UCT spokesperson, Elijah Moholola says the students were apprehended at an entrance to one of the campuses.
They were later released
Students have meanwhile vowed to continue with protests at UCT.
Student leader, Sinawo Thambo says, “We will continue to shut down and we will do so with the pain and anxiety, as the dire situation our comrades in prison are suffering, we will not be deterred, we urge the university community and the society at large to continue engaging the broader movement at a national level and frequent discussions and events hosted by the broader national movement of fees-must-fall.”
Another two protesting students were also detained after renewed clashes with private security at UCT on Tuesday.
UCT has also confirmed that it’s using alternative approaches to teaching and learning, including blended learning, which relies on digital and online material.[Source: SABC]
