On Friday, photographs surfaced on social media which showed college students sleeping on the ground after allegedly being locked out of their residence.
A social media user, who goes by the Twitter handle @INMNDL1, shared several photos of EFFSC members allegedly having to sleep on the kitchen floor after they were locked out of their residence over political reasons.
According to @INMNDL1, the EEFSC aided first year students with their registration and it was frowned upon by the housing management- which allegedly led to them being locked out.
"Ukzn Howard College students who help 1st year students 4 registration locked out on their residence by the Management Housing Department," the post was captioned.
Briefly.co.za gathered the post divided South Africans. Some felt the treatment of the EFFSC members were unacceptable.
However, others questioned the validity of the post. Some Twitter users went as far as to claim the photos were staged.
Twitter user @Skiidmarks1 commented: "A good stunt I must say well orchestrated and their are good actors too neh."
One social media user offered to provide evidence to the non-believers.

"Lastly an email I had issued as the Secretary prior to the campaign requesting the rooms," she captioned the post.
She also shared more videos and photos of the alleged incident.
