Five student protesters from UCT have been granted bail of R500 each.
A group of four students appeared together and student leader Masixole Mlandu appeared separately in the Wynberg Magistrates Court, reports EWN's Monique Mortlock.
The students appeared on a range of charges including assault and malicious damage to property.
Mlandu was arrested last week and has been in police custody since, for allegedly interfering with the campus security service.
The other four students were arrested on Tuesday 18 October for allegedly assaulting a private security guard.
UCT Vice-Chancellor Max Price wrote a letter to the courts explaining that the university did not oppose bail.
This comes after student peers demanded Mlandu be released, arguing that he is an integral part of the negotiations between university management and protesters.
