Students at Tshwane University of Technology in Soshanguve will shut down the university and protest until management answer their calls, following the fatal shooting of a student during council elections.
Violence broke out among students who attended the election of a new student representative council on Thursday night.
It is believed that shots were fired after claims of vote rigging.
Various student organisations say there won’t be any classes at all TUT campuses in Pretoria today.
University spokesperson Willa de Ruyter begs to differ saying that the campus is open but that extra security has been deployed.
