4 Students Arrested at UKZN

Violence has spread to the University of KZN with the Howard College and Westville campuses suffering disruption. Registration has been suspended at Howard College but is continuing at the university's other campuses.

The SRC have said that the protests will continue until the university allows all students to register despite their historical debt.

The KZN police spokesman Brigadier Jay Naicker told the media that about 100 students were on the campus early on Wednesday morning and started disrupting the registration process.

“They forced other students to join them and the crowd grew to about 1 000 students. They moved to Princess Alice Street, and set municipal bins on fire on the road. Registration has been suspended.

“The situation is tense. There has been slight damage to UKZN property. Police have been deployed to monitor the protests and take appropriate action when protesters commit crime,” said Naicker.

Another building was set alight at the university’s Westville campus.
