Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is due to deliver his medium term budget speech in Parliament on Wednesday.
The #FeesMustFall supporters are planning to disrupt the budget speech and demand a response to their call for free tertiary education. Students from UWC and UCT are gathered outside parliament waiting for the procession to begin.
Xolani Koyana, EWN reporter says leader of the Democratic Alliance, Mmusi Maimane, is currently addressing the students saying government must ensure universities stay open for those students who wish to continue with their studies.
Maimane stated that those continuing with the burning of universities should be arrested.
