TUKS students pray for peace

On Tuesday, 23 February tens of students at the University of Pretoria formed a human chain and began to pray for unity and peace on campus. "Jesus is Lord over our nation," they chanted. We will stand together, black and white, coloured and Indian, and unite in one purpose," said a prayer leader.

"Yes," replied students, their heads bowed in prayer. Some nodded in agreement, while one student raised a hand to the sky. The religious group's actions follow violent confrontations on campus over the institution's language policy and fee increases. Watch the full video above.
