Chaos in Joburg CBD as police fire rubber bullets at Wits students

Wednesday saw chaotic scenes erupt in the Johannesburg CBD when police fired rubber bullets at students who were protesting over fees and registration issues.

The students at Wits promise that protests will continue. NSFAS has been disgruntled over the alleged financial exclusion of some students.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane is calling on Police Minister Bheki Cele and the SA Human Rights Commission to intervene in the Wits student protests.

In a tweet, Mkhwebane said Cele and the SAHRC must act to make sure that Wits students are protected from violence at the hands of SAPS and university management.
