As many as 100 students protested at the UKZN Westville campus yesterday morning. They burnt debris and broke bottles along the road leading to the university.
It was believed the protests erupted after the exclusion of some students from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
UKZN student representative council (SRC) president Sanele Hlongwa said that the grievances were isolated to Westville campus, as it also involved the poor state of student residences on the campus and registration for the second semester.
“For the first time, registration was only opened for two weeks at the campus. Some students felt this was not enough time for them to get their things in order,” he said.
