Various cases of public violence were opened after protest action at DUT, UKZN, MUT and UNISA yesterday.

The protests are over registrations and NSFAS-related issues.

UKZN suspended classes at all of its campuses until further notice.

DUT's Alan Khan says they received reports non-protesting students were being intimidated on campus.

"There was some damage to DUT branded motor vehicles. The windows were damaged. The executive management, together with the executive of Senate, met at 3pm in the afternoon and a decision was made to temporarily suspend the academic programme today and tomorrow," Khan said.
