SASCO & Education Students Interrupting Lectures at TUT

SASCO says its intensifying its protest tomorrow.
The South African Student Congress (SASCO) and Education students have just interrupted lectures at the Tshwane Univerity of Technology’s Soshanguve North campus saying they are protesting for free education.

The protest march was planned earlier in the week when the student organisation, whose mother body is South Africa’s ruling African National Congress, announced at a meeting that they will not only interrupt lectures but will embark on a bigger march to the offices of the Minister of Higher Education, Dr Blade Nzimande, on Friday.

The protesters have left for the Soshanguve South campus where they say they will kick students out of lecture halls.

Security personnel wasgreeted by violence
when requested protest leaders to get off the car park roof.
During the protest in Soshanguve North some of the protesters jumped on the roof of the car park and security guards tried to intervene asking them to step down, but they refused ending up in a scuffle with security personnel. The students eventually jumped off the roof.

Before leaving they started singing struggle songs and also condemned security personnel for attempting to stop their protest march.

Nzimande is due to address the students and members of the public at the TUT’s Pretoria West campus on Friday at 6PM.
