The University of Pretoria (UP) decided on 17 May to discontinue yet another student tradition on campus. Serrie – a longstanding student tradition – was scrapped because it apparently creates a rape culture at the University. This follows after students complained over inappropriate posters that some men had held up during the women’s performances.
It was the Afrikaner’s darkest hour when the diehards of the Anglo Boer War locked horns twelve years later: On the one side the government forces (Kakies) of Prime Minister Louis Botha and his Minister of Defence, Jan Smuts – and on the other, the rebellion commandoes of General Koos de la Rey and Commandant Generals Christiaan de Wet and Christiaan Beyers. Only a few months later, all was over. The end was bitterer than that of 1902.

A march held by AfriForum Youth on Thursday, 15 May, prompted the Student Dean of the University of the Free State, Rudi Buys, to submit a written response to the organisation. AfriForum Youth has launched a campaign earlier this year to ensure that healthy student traditions, student life and residences survive at the UFS.

AfriForum Youth has offered its support to members of the Karlien Female Residence at the Potchefstroom Campus of the North-West University. This comes after the House Committee was temporarily suspended, after charges – which are still unknown to them – were laid against them. The youth organisation is of the view that the University’s steps against the students are unreasonable.
