UCT student activist Athabile Nonxuba faces a prison sentence of 15 years if convicted on a charge of robbery during Fees Must Fall protests, the Cape Town Magistrate's Court heard on Tuesday.
Wearing his grey University of Cape Town sweater and holding a copy of Steve Biko's I Write What I Like, Nonxuba listened intently as he heard he was being accused of a Schedule 5 offence.
He is one of 304 people arrested over the past two weeks for incidents during student protests to demand free tertiary education. A total of 831 people have been arrested since February 1 this year.
