Higher Education and Training Network notes racism aimed at black students
01 September 2015
The Higher Education and
Training Network said in a statement that it has noted with grave concern the
recent revelations of racism and abuse aimed at black students at StellenboschUniversity.
This comes after a multitude
of racist incidents at several of the historically white universities including
the University of
Pretoria, North-WestUniversity and the University of Cape Town
and others were revealed.
HETN Alumni Support Director,
Hendrick Makaneta said the HETN is of the firm opinion that the time has come
for the Department of Higher Education to exercise bold leadership and abandon
the approach it has adopted towards the historically white institutions.
Makaneta said, “We are saying
these universities belong to all the students. Language must be used to the
exclusion of other students.”
