UPROAR OVER VIDEO OF POLICE ARRESTING NAKED WOMAN BELIEVED TO BE STUDENT AT UNI OF CAPE TOWN

JOHANNESBURG, A video of police officers dragging a naked woman, believed to be a student at the University of Cape Town, where students have been engaged in an unlawful protest, has caused an up-roar on social media.

It was reported that the 23-year-old woman was arrested by the police after she stripped herself completely naked and blocked traffic in the Mowbray suburb of the city earlier on Thursday.

The university obtained an interdict on Monday to stop students from protesting unlawfully and disrupting campus operations.

Around 200 students went on the rampage, starting fires and causing havoc on Wednesday night.

UCT student Sihle Lonzi says the woman in the video stripped naked because she was demonstrating protest art.

“Today has been a very stressful day for students. On lower campus this morning, one of our art students was demonstrating through art, not anything else or shutting down classrooms,” Lonzi said.

“But she was protesting using innovative ways. The police then gave her a warning. After that they dragged her. She then fainted. We then asked the (police) commander to call the ambulance (but) 15 minutes later they (still) hadn’t even called the ambulance.”
