A group at least 200 protesters at UCT have made their way to Bremner administrative building, demanding management give them answers.
The group want campus to be shut down for the remainder of the week, in order for students and university management to engage on the matters they feel have not been adequately dealt with.

University management has since announced that it will close all campuses until Friday 7 October.
The protesting group are saying that they will respond with violence if management forces their hand, reports EWN's Shamiela Fisher.

Several vans of private security and police have been following protesters and patrolling campuses and monitoring the group's actions.
Students and security clashed during a confrontation overnight when protesters attempted to gain access to the Steve Biko Student Union Building on Upper Campus.
Meanwhile, at CPUT a group of non-protesting students were prohibited from gaining access to their residence after they refused to submit to pressure to join the demonstrations.
We were locked out after the protesters came to intimidate us to join the strike, so we wanted to leave. When we went back, they locked us out and didn't want to let us back in.— Samkele, CPUT student
