THERE is a very disturbing document about to hit universities in South Africa. It is the report of the Transformation Oversight Committee (TOC) instituted by Minister Blade Nzimande to reveal the extent of change at the 23 public universities. The report, to begin with, is ahistorical. Black universities are not transformed because they are black. The worst kinds of tribalism may exist in historically black universities (HBU). All but one of the HBUs was set up by apartheid for separate tribal groupings, that is why they are black. Some are very conservative. Other HBUs are regularly trashed by their students, neglected during long strikes by lecturers, or placed under administration for poor management or governance or both. That is not transformation.
