Protesters disrupted a Fundamental Rights Exam at North West University’s Vaal Triangle Campus today.
The protesters entered the exam and threw out students. Afterwards one student said they were threatened that if they didn’t leave they would get hurt.
Police and private security then came on the scene and secured the exam venue. After about 15 minutes the invigilator called back the students to continue writing. The exam continued, under police protection.
