Watch: #FeesMustFall protestors try to tip over a bus

Protesting students from Wits University have taken to the streets of Johannesburg, following clashes with police on the university’s grounds.

eNCA reported that Jan Smuts Avenue in Johannesburg was blocked by protesting #FeesMustFall students, who set fire to objects placed in the road.

Police fired teargas at the students, while businesses in the Braamfontein area closed – due to fear of being caught in the crossfire.

Jacaranda FM journalist Maryke Vermaak, documented how protestors were able to stop a bus in the middle of the street in Braamfontein, try to tip it over, and then set it alight.
