Bloemfontein - Security guards were protecting the statue ofMarthinus Theunis Steyn at the University of the Free State from furthervandalism on Thursday.

About 10 security guards had been on guard since earlymorning,

protecting the likeness of the Orange Free State's president, after itwas slightly vandalised.

EFF protesters pulled down and vandalised a statue ofCharles Robberts Swart at the university on Tuesday morning. They burnt tyresat the foot of the statue, and used hammers and rocks to get it down.

CR Swart served as the last Governor General of Union ofSouth Africa from 1960 to 1961.

On Tuesday, EFF supporters in red T-shirts and berets,spilled onto the campus and blockaded the main gate, while others vandalisedthe statue and law buildings.

The protesters smashed glass cabinets and spray-painted thewords "Robert Sobukwe Law School" on one of the buildings.

Student Representative Council vice president, Mpho Khati,told students they were the university's new management and would make theinstitution ungovernable until their demands, which included that the universitydirectly employ contract workers, were met.

The CR Swart statue was still lying in a pond in front ofthe law faculty on Thursday afternoon.
