Eusebius McKaiser and caller discuss the vandalisation of property during protests and the violence at universities.

KwaZulu-Natal Saps are investigating a case of murder after a private security company allegedly shot dead a student from the Durban University of Technology (DUT).

It is alleged that students were trying to vandalise one of the university buildings when the incident happened.

Abel, a caller on the Eusebius McKaiser Show says he is concerned with the amount of vandalism and disorder that goes on when there are protests.

There is no need for people to vandalise property when they protest and there is no need for people to cause more damage. That is something that needs to be looked at.

Abel, caller

Another caller, Mohamed says 19 years ago he was a student at the University of Durban Westville and a student died in front of him.

And now 19 years later, we are losing lives at our universities. How should we deal with the loss of lives in schools?

Mohamed, caller

Gustaf, another caller says people vandalise because the government is not listening to the cries of the people.

You go to a community meeting and you tell officials that there are potholes or we have drugs in our community. The officials do nothing about the matter, a week later a child dies from drugs, what do you think the community is going to do? Of course, they will vandalise.

Gustaf, caller
