Pretoria - University of Pretoria students and workers on Monday disrupted registration during a protest against outsourcing.

The group of about 300 occupied the client services centre carrying placards and tree branches. They vandalised the building and dumped rubbish on the floor.

Some students vowed that no registration would take place until their demands were met. Others said they would boycott lectures.

No security staff could be seen on the main campus.

An EFF student leader, who did not want to be named, said university management told them they were first discussing student fees. The EFF Student Command had organised the protest.

The university's management could not immediately be reached for comment.
