Students at the University of the Free State (UFS) say the proposed eight percent fees increment for 2017 is unjust especially for poor students.
Since the #FeesMustFall campaign started, students at the institution have been protesting as part of showing solidarity with other academics across the country.
One protestor has been quoted by the media as saying that, “We want free education so that people that are not privileged can actually study. The eight percent is ridiculous because we can't pay, because if they say the increment is eight percent then it means our registration will be R14 000.”
