Manyathela says there are a few police officers managing the situation.

Most shops in Braamfontein are closing due to chaos on the streets.

Earlier on there were clashes between students, police and campus security on campus. Some students have been injured.

I saw medical students have set up in a shop assisting students that have been affected by stun grenades and rubber bullets that police are firing.
