Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma explains why he was threatened by the private security company.

The situation got tense at DUT's Steve Biko campus on Friday after KwaZulu-Natal police arrested five students on charges of public violence.

Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma explains how security personnel threatened him thinking he was one of the students.

I was threatened with violence and I was told I was going to be thrown off a cliff.

I had witnessed how one of the student leaders was detained by about ten men. The security guards demanded that I delete the footage, which I did not.

Duma says the five students who were detained earlier have been released due to insufficient evidence.

However, six more students remain in custody.

Many of the students that are protesting are those who qualify for Nsfas and they say they have not received their allowance and it is unfair for the academic programme to continue while they are hungry.
