Prospective Unisa students have blockaded roads in the Durban city centre as part of protest action‚ police sources confirmed on Friday morning.

The protests – which are allegedly linked to a Unisa staff strike that has prevented students from registering – started shortly after 9am.

According to Durban city officials and police‚ students have also been throwing rocks at vehicles around the campus on KE Masinga (formerly Old Fort) Road.

Metro police have called for public order policing assistance‚ according to sources.

SAPS spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed the protests and that police were responding‚ but said full details were not immediately available.
