Johannesburg – Frustrated Wits students have on Wednesday blocked the entry gates to the campus in protest action demanding accommodation and financial support.
The student representative council (SRC) said that students have been sleeping in libraries, corridors, laboratories and restrooms due to lack of accommodation and struggling to pay for other accommodation.
The excluded students were demanding to be placed at residences and to be able to register without any payment.
The SRC made it clear that the university would face an immediate shutdown until their demands were met.
