Yesterday saw another day of #FeesMustFall protests at universities around South Africa and it reached new levels at UCT where a lone security guard was beaten by a group of protesters and university workers.
The protesting students and workers had apparently moved from building to building on the campus telling people they need to evacuate. The guard was alone when protesting students chased him and assaulted him.
“Taking the security guards by surprise‚ some of the workers broke away from a group of students and attacked a lone security guard. Video footage of the incident shows the guard lying on the ground‚ being beaten with a steel rod taped up with masking tape. He is also beaten with his own baton.
The guard was attacked because he bore a striking resemblance to a security guard who was photographed pulling the hair of a female student”. [TimesLIVE]
