Hundreds of students from Durban’s University of Technology protested on campus on Monday

The demonstrations had been peaceful so far, spokesman Captain Thulani Zwane said.
About 500 students marched from the ML Sultan campus to the Steve Biko campus in the morning, rector Ahmed Bawa said in a statement.
“We have not received a memorandum of demands from the SRC, but we have received a list of concerns relating primarily to financial aid issues for returning students.”
Bass said there was one report of a broken window. Security guards kept the main gates closed and students not participating in the protest left via a smaller gate.
Comment could not be obtained from the student representative council. Earlier this year the institution was closed when students protested over not being allowed to enrol because of the non-payment of fees.
