Johannesburg - Nine of South Africa's universities will close down on Thursday because of protest action demanding free education, the SA Students Congress said on Wednesday.

"We have decided to engage in protest action demanding free education. We will take the fight for this right to the doors of the State and all its peers - Parliament, government and even the judiciary if we have to," said Sasco secretary general Lazola Ndamase during a press briefing at Luthuli House in Johannesburg.

He said the University of Venda, University of Limpopo, Tshwane University of Technology, University of Johannesburg, Durban University of Technology, University of Zululand, Walter Sisulu University, Cape Peninsula University for Technology and the University of Western Cape will shut down on Thursday as there would be protests at these universities demanding free education.

Ndamase also said there would be a national march to Parliament in Cape Town on Friday, where 1 000 students are expected to participate.
