Wits has released a statement saying that the university
will be closed until Monday, October 26:
Wits University has over the past few days suspended all
University activities on a day-by-day basis as developments unfolded around the
ongoing student protest.
The University acknowledges that there has been a call
for a national day of solidarity to take place tomorrow, Wednesday, 21 October
2015. Wits also recognises the need to allow time for the necessary
negotiations to take place to resolve the current situation.
In order to ensure the safety and security of our staff
and students, the executive management has decided to suspend all University
activities for the remainder of this week.
This applies to all staff (academic,
professional, support and administrative) and students.
The University encourages students to use this time
productively to prepare for their examinations.
Students are also reminded that any protests that take
place off campus are out of Wits University’s control and that the University
has no influence over how the South African Police Service may deal with
situations that occur in public areas.

UCT student, Taki Nkosi, told News 24 that she could barely
afford to pay her 2015 fees.
"Even a 1% increase will financially cripple me even
further. What don't these rich people understand about struggling working class
families trying their damndest to give their kids a decent life?
I asked if there was a comment on the use of police against students. Student rep condemned it, Blade did not respond #FeesMustFall— Rebecca Davis (@becsplanb) October 20, 2015

UCT students say 6% is way too much for an increase and that Nzimande must be crazy.
They say they have heard that UWC is joining the protest tomorrow (Wednesday). And they say they want the minutes of Nzimande's meeting today and what UCT said there.
I convened a meeting of stakeholders in Cape Town - Nzimande
Trade union reps, student union reps and vice chancellors were present.
Scheduled protest at Rhodes was called off this morning,
allegedly due to safety reasons. Students however gathered peacefully on the
corner of Somerset Street and Prince Alfred Roads (where the main blockade has
been erected), to paint and prepare posters for Wednesday’s nationwide fees
According to psychology student Carmen le Roux, a group
of singing students from Midlands College came up High street and joined the
students at the blockade and a large protest dance was ignited (as shown in the
video), though entirely peaceful.
“As soon as the crowd grew and the singing began, you
could immediately feel a police presence,” le Roux added.
