Johannesburg - A group of high school pupils were seen looting shops in Fordsburg, Johannesburg on Wednesday afternoon. 

Video footage supplied to News24 shows a large group going in and out of a shop, carrying goods. 

However police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubela denied claims that there was looting. He said a large group of students were handing over a memorandum to the department of education. 

It is still unclear if the two events are connected, or what the demands of the students were.
