The point of the movement was to move the government into giving South Africans free higher education but a Twitter user recently asked if destroying property is the way to go.

Twitter user @Unathi_Kwaza shared her thoughts on the social media platform and fellow tweeps responded quite explosively.

Damage caused by Fees Must Fall protests to varsities stands at a staggering R800 million. Let that sink in. As we move forward as a country, we have to ask ourselves, is destroying property the only way we'll ever make our voices heard?
