Universities SA Condemns incidents of arson at Public Universities

Universities South Africa (USAf), the representative association of the 26 public universities in South Africa, condemns with the utmost contempt the rampant arson attacks being perpetrated our universities in the past week. The attempted burning of the Council Chamber at Rhodes University; the actual burning of a residential building at the Vaal University of Technology and the burning of the main auditorium at the University of Johannesburg are the latest cases in point. These point to a continuation of acts of arson witnessed at the University of Cape Town and at the University of the Witwatersrand, culminating in the burning down of an administrative building at the North-West University’s Mafikeng Campus since late 2015. All of these acts are totally despicable.
