‘Kill all whites’ incident: No complaint laid at Pretoria university

2014-09-16 08:50

An alleged racist incident that happened outside a University of Pretoria residence has received no complaints, the university said.

“The statement by AfriForum was sent to the media, but to date no complaints were made through any of the University of Pretoria’s channels,” spokesperson Nicolize Mulder said yesterday.

“After the statement was released today, the university did start an investigation into the matter.”

Earlier yesterday, AfriForum Youth said that white students at the Taaibos residence were racially abused by two unknown black students from the Kollege Tehuis residence on September 4.

Apparently one of the two black students told white students at the Taaibos gates that he hated whites and he wanted to kill all whites.

“AfriForum Youth requested university management to investigate the incident with the necessary urgency,” spokesperson Monique du Randt said.

“This incident once again proves that all races are affected by racism. AfriForum Youth requested the university to be consequential when implementing disciplinary steps in all racism-related incidents.”

She said the matter needed to be addressed urgently.
