SAPS swooped on a meeting of the #FeesMustFall members earlier this afternoon and arrested three of the leadership: Thandeka Tshabalala, Thanduxolo Nkala and Liso Jim. They had been part of a meeting on the NMMU Campus.
Over on Facebook Simnikiwe Ntingi commented; “They may have arrested the leaders, but they will never arrest the struggle. Qina mfundi.”
As a result of the arrests the Fees Must Fall Movement has cancelled a night vigil scheduled for tonight to which Wiseman Sibande commented; “The cancelling of the night vigil, is what these people want, to derail the movement and divide it.”
After the arrests the SAPS told the FMF members to immediately stop their meeting and vacate the room as they had not been authorised to hold such a meeting or be in the room.
