Johannesburg – Ten students were arrested during a protest at the Walter Sisulu University's Bika campus, Eastern Cape police said on Saturday. The 10 students, including six females were arrested on Friday in connection with public violence and malicious damage to property, said police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha. They had allegedly participated in a blockade of the N2 during which motor vehicles were pelted with stones, he said. "We were told they were protesting because of the suspected fee increment, but we managed to deal with the situation and arrest those who were violent," said Manatha. In a separate incident, two other students from the university were arrested and charged with housebreaking and theft. "They are linked with housebreaking of a shop which is within the university," said Manatha. They were expected to appear in the Butterworth Magistrate's Court on Monday.
