No less than twenty-nine South Africans have been charged with public violence amid the biggest student protests to hit the country since apartheid ended in 1994.
According to BBC News, police again fired stun grenades to disperse students in Cape Town a day after protesters stormed the parliamentary complex.
The demonstrations are a result of students’ anger with a proposed increase in tuition fees. It began last week at Johannesburg‘s prestigious University of the Witwatersrand, and have since spread to at least 10 universities, forcing the closure of many of them.
