Johannesburg - Students outside the University of Johannesburg’s APK campus were chanting and singing “Iyhoo Solomon” reviving the Fees Must Fall movement which began late last year.

Students on Monday were trying to block off the entrance 2 of UJ APK campus. Sporadic quarrels flared up between students and police officers. Students broke out into song in protest.

This followed the briefing by Deputy Vice Chancellor, Mpho Letlape and Professor Kinta Burger on the call centre and online registration system provided by the university which is being used by some of the students.

Students emphasise that they want no registration fee and free education for the poor.
