UCT, CPUT students to descend on Parliament over Fees Commission report

University of Cape Town (UCT) and Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) students are set to march to Parliament on Wednesday to demand that President Jacob Zuma release the Fees Commission report.

This comes as Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba delivers his medium-term budget statement to the legislature.

Zuma received the Fees Commission report in August and has been “studying the report” ever since.

Students are expected to assemble at the CPUT Cape Town campus at 11:00 before marching to Parliament, about 1km away.

Western Cape police told News24 that they were ready to “maintain law and order” during the unapproved protest action.

“Adequate numbers of resources have been deployed to police any occurrence which may arise,” Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Andrè Traut said on Wednesday morning.
