Twenty-nine South Africans have been charged with public violence amid the biggest student protests to hit the country since apartheid ended in 1994.

According to BBC News, Police again fired stun grenades to disperse students in Cape Town, a day after protesters stormed the parliamentary complex.

Thousands also descended on the governing party’s headquarters in the main city, Johannesburg.

The students are angry with a proposed increase in tuition fees.

President Jacob Zuma said he would meet student leaders on Friday to discuss their grievances.
