Petrol bombs found on campus

Three petrol bombs were found today on the Wits Braamfontein campus. They were found behind a building, close to a fence. The police are investigating the matter and the University will cooperate with them as required.

Today’s discovery provides strong evidence that there are people intent on arson who will go to any length to put the lives of the University community in danger and who are intent on destroying University property.

We condemn all violence in the strongest possible way and we are determined not to let this situation continue.

All University activities remain suspended until further notice. We will communicate with you on the way forward on Monday.
