JOHANNESBURG: Mayor Herman Mashaba has condemned the destruction of property and looting during the #FeesMustFall protests in Braamfontein, and called on the police to arrest perpetrators.
Mashaba said although everyone had a right to protest to highlight the plight of students crippled by tuition fees, criminal activities would not be tolerated in the city.
A bus was set alight, motorists pelted with stones and shops looted during a protest held by Wits University students in Braamfontein on Monday.
“These acts are nothing but criminal, and there should be serious consequences for those found responsible. Our metro police will work hand in hand with the SAPS to bring those responsible for the mayhem to book…
"We will not stand by and watch while human life is endangered, and infrastructure is destroyed,” Mashaba said.
