A keffiyeh scarf‚ which was worn by a lot of students during the protests‚ was seen hanging from one of the Nyala’s windows. National police spokesperson Brigadier Sally de Beer confirmed that the vehicle had been vandalised overnight and that the police were investigating the case. "The police are present to ensure the safety of all and it is regrettable that this has happened," she said. "We are taking steps to identify the culprits, who could face malicious damage to property charges." TMG Digital
