Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) students have expressed their discontent after the police officers arrested on suspicions of killing fellow student Katlego Monareng were granted bail at the Soshanguve Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Monareng was shot dead in August at the Soshanguve North campus during protests over the alleged rigging of SRC elections.
Students claim the accused cops, Captain Joseph Rapoo and Constable John Slender may have access to witnesses.
The first officer, Constable John Slender, says he intends to plead not guilty. Captain Joseph Rapoo is accused of giving the orders for the shots to be fired. Ipid investigators say the affidavits were not plausible and this is the reason they were arrested.— Ahmed Kajee, EWN reporter
