Students across South Africa have called for a national shutdown of the country’s tertiary institutions.
Several South African universities have been brought to a standstill over student protests on rising tuition fees.
On Wednesday, the #FeesMustFall movement embarked on a #NationalShutdown, documenting various campus protests on Twitter.
Protesting students at the University of the Witwatersrand have gathered in front of the Constitutional Court.
Meanwhile, students from the University of Cape Town (UCT) and Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) have converged outside of Parliament.
Several members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) were ejected from national assembly for chanting "fees must fall" ahead of Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene's second mid-term budget speech.
