Students at the Umbilo TVET college in Durban barricaded the road with desks and chairs during a protest outside their campus.
The protest was in response to the school not issuing a reply to the students’ memorandum of demands that they handed over on Tuesday.
“They asked us here to come get a response but no one from management is addressing us,” said Thubelihle Ngcamo, one of the protest leaders.
The group, which consisted of about 100 students, arrived on campus at about 10 am expecting an address from Anne Simpson, the campus manager.
At about 11.30 am, they became frustrated and started throwing paper around campus and threw a desk on top of a car belonging to a staff member.
Superintendent Parboo Sewpersad, Metro Police spokesperson, said at around 2 pm police arrived at the scene and dispersed the students using water tankers.
No arrests were made.
Going forward, the students said they are planning on staying away from campus till next week.
No one from the college was available to speak to The Witness.
