'Go home' - DUT protesters tell other students

2016-10-03 12:07

Durban - Durban University of Technology students have warned those not taking part in fees protests to "go home". 

DUT has been a flashpoint of civil disobedience, with repeated clashes between students and riot police. 

During a moment of respite in thundershowers on Monday, students massed on Steve Biko campus and were addressed by an unnamed leader. 

He warned that if students had no interest in joining their movement, they should go home. 

He said that "spectators" would not be tolerated, and warned students against filming protesters, lest they be "sorted out". 

He also issued a warning to the media, insisting they were unwelcome. 

The group brandished sticks and planks. 

After a brief stint on Steve Biko campus, the group moved onto Ritson campus.  

This is a developing story.
