A group of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) students from the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s (UKZN) Westville campus tried to torch a security quad bike, smashed several windows and ended up stoning police and private security today.

The incidents occurred on the day that the academic programme resumed following a spate of violent protests last week that forced management to again temporarily suspend lectures. “A group of students embarked on violent protest action and disrupted the academic programme on the University of KwaZulu-Natal Westville campus this morning,” said Normah Zondo, acting executive director for corporate relations.

She said the students committed acts of “arson” and caused “grave damage” to university property, including buildings.
