Cape Town – The University of the Western Cape (UWC) has condemned the arson attacks at the institution on Monday.

This is after three protesters were arrested on Monday morning for setting fire to the Reslife Building and the security booths outside the Kovacs Building.

University spokesperson Luthando Tyhalibongo said the protesters were caught at the Reslife building.

"The University condemns these attacks and reiterates its call for protesters to desist from committing acts of violence, vandalism, intimidation and arson," Tyhalibongo said.

"The security threat to students and staff in addition to the damage of property remains a concern for the University. UWC will continue to monitor the situation with the assistance of SAPS, and will continue to engage with stakeholders in an effort to find solutions to the current challenges."

Meanwhile, more than 400 UWC final year students wrote their examinations at an off-campus location without any interruption on Monday.
