Disruptions on education campus

- Wits University

The situation is contained and protesters have dispersed.

Dear Colleagues

We experienced some disruptions on the Wits Education Campus today. We managed to contain the situation this morning but a group of students continued to protest on the campus this afternoon. They have since dispersed and the campus is secure.

We deployed additional security to guard lecture theatres and requested the police to arrest individuals who were disrupting lectures. The University is in discussion with the police tonight to develop comprehensive security plans for all campuses.

Thank you
