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.

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

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.
