SOSHANGUVE – The African National Congress (ANC) is deeply concerned about the allegations that live ammunition was used by the police to handle a student protest on Thursday evening in the Soshanguve campus of the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).

A student was killed after he got a gunshot on the head. The Independent Police Investigative Directorate investigates the incident.

In response, students have damaged property and barricaded roads that lead to the institution.

The Pule Mabe of the ANC says the party is confident that law enforcement agencies will discover what has happened.

He says that the issue must be given priority.

"The ANC urges the authorities to ensure that this research is conducted and completed with the utmost urgency."

He says that learning institutions must be a home for political tolerance and free democratic interaction.

"We urge students and university authorities to ensure that elections for student representatives are conducted peacefully and with integrity."

TUT says that it has started its own investigation into the SRC elections on Thursday that led to violence and the death of the student.
