The ANC has slammed the rector of the University of the Free State for dropping disciplinary charges against four white students whose video humiliating black workers sparked a race outcry last year.
Rector Jonathan Jansen, who is the first black rector at the university, said UFS withdrew the charges in a gesture of racial reconciliation and the need for healing.
However, the ANC says its view is that the withdrawal of the charges will again harden racial attitudes not only in the university but in the country as a whole
