Cape Town – The University of Cape Town has got acourt interdict against 16 students, including Eskom CEO Brian Molefe's son,following violent campus protests.

The university approached the Cape Town High Court

onWednesday after busts were damaged, and paintings, a Jammie shuttle bus and abakkie were set alight.

Vice Chancellor Max Price's office was petrol bombed.

Eight people were arrested. One of them was not a student.

Molefe was seen posting bail for his son Itumeleng at theWynberg Magistrate's Court where he and others appeared on charges of publicviolence and malicious damage to property.

"We've had discussions about this and he has his views;I've got my views about it but I support my son," Molefe told reportersafter their appearance in court.

On Monday, students erected a shack on Residence Road andcordoned off an area, calling it Shackville. Their actions were intended tohighlight accommodation shortages in residences, which they said did not affectwhite students. They claimed that black students were being treated badly.

But Price, at a press conference later on Wednesday, said in2015 over 75% of students living in the university's residences were black andthe number was expected to be higher this year.
