EFF student command threatens anarchy at universities
It wants all institutions of higher learning to allow walk-in registration, to provide free student registration and to cancel historic student debt.

Shikwambana, speaking on Friday 3 January at a press conference, said EFF “bouncers” – possibly the party's paramilitary known as “defenders of the revolution” – would be ready to confront police.
The organisation singled out three institutions – the University of Johannesburg, the Vaal University of Technology and the University of Venda – for increasing tuition fees for the upcoming academic year. Shikwambana said they would not stand for the hike and promised “harsh” action.
