Stun grenades fired as TUT protests continue

Police fired stun grenades at protesting workers and students trying to barricade the Tshwane University of Technology’s (TUT) entrance on Monday morning.

Workers continued with #OutsourcingMustFall protests even though an agreement had been reached between the university management, Nehawu and protesters last week.

TUT spokesperson Willa De Ruyter said calm had been restored by noon thanks to a court interdict obtained against disruptions last week.

“Due to the court interdict, the public order policing unit forced protesters away from the entrance. According to the interdict, they are not allowed more than 150m near the entrance,” De Ruyter said.

She said academic activities continued as normal.

“The entrance is opened to students and staff are back at work to proceed with the academic year.”
