Cops accused of murdering TUT student released on bail
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.
