Cape Town - Nine University of Cape Town students were arrested on Tuesday morning following a protest against a proposed increase in fees that started on Monday.
Police arrested some of the students who burnt tyres and barricaded entrances to the campus on Tuesday morning.
UCT management said that due to the protest, all classes were suspended until further notice and the Upper, Middle and Lower Campus were inaccessible on Tuesday morning.
* At Stellenbosch University some protesters occupied an administration block on Tuesday morning.
* Students also protested at Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape. Rhodes will still be shut down for the next two days, apparently to give government time to adress the issue of increased fees.
