The Democratic Alliance says it condemns all instances of racial discrimination which aims to foster divisions in society.

This is after racial tensions at Stellenbosch University, which erupted last week.

DA’s national spokeswoman, Phumzile van Damme says, the DA agrees that there needs to be an investigation into this matter.

She said the DA calls upon all stakeholders including Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Higher Education and Training, the leaders of the university and the students to find each other in order to formulate a way forward.

“We are requesting that every allegation of racism at Stellenbosch university be investigated and not be swept under the carpet” Van Damme added.
