In an attempt to escape the crowd and the unrest, the student behind the wheel tried to navigate her vehicle away from the scene, inadvertently colliding with two fellow students.

Fortunately, one of the students only required a medical examination and was able to return to her residence later that same afternoon. The university is providing support to both the injured students and the traumatised motorist.

The protest was organised by the EFF student command, with the aim of pressuring the university to release student allowances.

As classes had already commenced, students were facing difficulties accessing basic necessities such as toiletries and food. During the demonstration, the students closed the road, which led to the incident involving the motorist.
