Cape Town - The case against 27 Cape Peninsula University of Technology students arrested for public violence has been postponed to January 22.

The group appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Monday.

About 100 students protested in Landdros Street as the accused appeared in the dock.

After hearing the matter had been postponed, the students blocked the road while singing "Bazozisola", meaning "they will regret this".

Traffic was disrupted for about 20 minutes before the group dispersed.

The 27 students were arrested on Friday after clashing with public order police at the university's Bellville campus.
