University of Pretoria responds to "Nazi" blog incident
29 July 2011
The controversial “Nazi blog” posted by the University of Pretoria's TuksFM breakfast team on Wednesday is still in the spotlight.
After numerous attempts yesterday to get a comment from TuksFM station management, Bush Radio contacted the communications department of the University of Pretoria.
The University of Pretoria today has finally responded to the “Nazi post” with a statement saying “TuksFM confirms that there was never any malicious intent with the placing of the initial content on the blog, but UP finds it regrettable that the photographic pose that was proposed is one that offends many people”.
The statement also states that an explanation was given on air.
