Sixteen students of the University of Pretoria (UP) appeared in the Pretoria Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday morning on charges of contravening a court interdict and breaching provisions of the Regulations of Gatherings Act 205 of 1993.

UP’s Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command (EFFSC) spokesperson, Lungile Al-Hassan Sonwabo, said these students were arrested at the UP’s prospect entrance on November 6 while they were having a peaceful night vigil mourning the passing of the University of Johannesburg student Kelvin Baloyi, who was allegedly shot and killed by a private security guard on the UJ campus.

EFFSC UP chairperson Amla Monageng also appeared in court. He was arrested for the second time last week at a pizza restaurant in Pretoria.

EFF national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi is also present at court.
