Ok so you should all be aware of the students at universities around SA currently engaged in protests about increased fees. Most of the major universities have shut down today and yesterday saw police use stun grenades HERE and tear gas to disperse students. Yesterday also saw DA leader Mmusi Maimane pitch up at UCT to join students, but his efforts didn’t exactly go down well.
A few students said his appearance was a political stunt and chased him off. One can be heard calling him a ‘f**king sellout’.

Maimane told students that their fight should rather be with Blade Nzimande (the minister for higher education) and not the universities.
Well i don’t see Blade going to any of the protests.
