Cape Town - Following the ongoing protests among university students, the PSL have postponed the Absa Premiership fixture between Bidvest Wits and Jomo Cosmos.

According to the PSL Twitter account, the scheduled match has been postponed due to the uncertainty surrounding the venue.

Wits host all their home games on the grounds of the University of Witwatersrand at the Bidvest Stadium.

“Following discussions with the clubs concerned, PSL has postponed the scheduled #AbsaPrem fixture between Bidvest Wits and Jomo Cosmos due to uncertainty around the venue,” said the Tweet.

“The fixture was scheduled for 27 October at the Bidvest Stadium in Johannesburg. The League will communicate a new date in due course.”

Students have been protesting as all university fees in South Africa were to get a 10%-12% increase in 2016.

On Friday, October 23 South African president Jacob Zuma announced that a 0% increase on fees.

However, students are still unhappy as they want free education in South Africa.
