Cape Town Universities Shut Down Amid Protests

As student fees have increased at Cape Town’s universities, so have safety concerns


As student fees have increased at Cape Town’s universities, so have safety concerns. Clashes with police and security forces resulted in all three of Cape Town’s colleges suspending classes on October 5 and beyond. While finances have been the main focus of the protests in South Africa, race has also been cited as a factor in a situation for which a remedy does not appear at hand anytime soon.
