In a strongly worded response to a memorandum received from the Student Representative Council (SRC) and the Progressive Youth Alliance at the Durban University of Technology, vice-chancellor Ahmed Bawa has written that it is “outrageous, preposterous and a deep violation of our National Constitution and every human rights principle” for these organisations to have demanded the deregistration of Jewish students.

“No student at DUT will be discriminated against on the basis of religion, race, gender, political affiliation or sexual orientation,” wrote Bawa.

Read Bawa’s full letter which deals with several SRC demands.
