Stun Grenades Fired at CPUT Cape Town Campus

This morning, police fired stun grenades at students at Cape Peninsula University of Technology who were protesting for the rights of workers, News24 reports.

CPUT spokesperson Lauren Kansley told the website that a group of students set a number of classrooms alight in the early hours.

Kansley told jacaranda FM what the students are unhappy about. “We insource cleaners and security and there are gripes over their contracts. The other issue is that exams continue today and we understand that students don’t want that to happen,” Kansley was quoted by the website saying. “There is also issues over four students who have pending interdicts against them and they want those dropped.”
