Cape Town – The situation at Stellenbosch University appeared to heat up on Thursday when a student aligned to the EFF slapped a poster onto a statue of Jan Marais.
Video clips on social media showed black and white students shouting at each other while police tried to keep them apart.
A group of students demanded to give a memorandum of grievances to the university’s vice-chancellor Wim de Villiers, Eyewitness News tweeted.
A statue was erected for Marais after he donated £100 000 in 1918 to allow the institution to go from Victoria College to Stellenbosch University.
