Update from the Senior Executive Team (06:30):

There were several incidents that took place on the Braamfontein campuses last night. A group of protesting students tried to start at least four fires in different places on the campuses. These fires were quickly extinguished. 

Protestors threw stones that damaged buildings. They smashed several windows. Some buildings were flooded as students left taps open. 

The police and security managed the situation and two students were arrested. 

Cleaning is underway across the campuses at the moment and classes go ahead today.
