South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has said that students who destroy property during protests against a rise in tuition fees will go to court.

The destruction of property is a criminal offence… We have directed the police to ensure that all such cases reach the courts and that those responsible answer for their actions. ”

He appealed to people to work together “to find solutions to the challenge of student funding and access”.

South Africa has been hit by a week of protests following a government announcement that universities could raise tuition fees by a maximum of 8%.
