PHOTOS: Student Protests In South Africa

October 6, 2016

Reuters photographers have been documenting the ongoing student protests at universities across South Africa. Students are demonstrating against the current high costs of university, which often have a prohibitive effect on black students.


The current protests were triggered by a government recommendation that 2017 tuition fee increases be capped at 8% - above South Africa's current inflation rate of 6%. 


Universities where students have been protesting include the University of Cape Town, Durban University of Technology, and the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.
