JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said protesting cleaners were heading towards the Department of Labour in Braamfontein when they were joined by a group of students.
An officer from the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) and two students were taken to hospital on Friday afternoon after a skirmish in Braamfontein‚ Johannesburg.
According to Minnaar‚ the cleaners work in one of the student residences.
In Melle Street someone threw a glass bottle from the roof of a building and it landed on the head of a JMPD officer‚ after which police started firing rubber bullets.
