AfriForum Youth yesterday delivered a memorandum to the management of the University of Pretoria (UP) in which the organisation demands the suspension of Luvuyo Menziwa, a UP student and member of the Student Council. This follows after Menziwa posted on Facebook that he wanted to kill white people with an AK-47 or a bazooka.
AfriForum Youth is of the opinion that such incidents incite violence on campus and unnecessary strife between students. According to Henrico Barnard, Spokesperson for AfriForum Youth on the Tuks campus, it is the University’s responsibility to protect students. However, if students feel unsafe, the UP is neglecting this responsibility.
“AfriForum Youth should have received a reply from the UP management already on 30 Augustus 2016. Since we have not received any reply, we are now compelled to take further steps,” says Jaco Grobbelaar, Coordinator for AfriForum Youth on the Tuks campus.
