There’s a interesting piece from Ferial Haffajee here. A group of leaders from the University of KwaZulu Natal respond to an article on rape on campus by Lubna Nadvi. They accuse Nadvi of racism. They say Nadvi only cared when an American student was raped. Why has she “not been angry at the rape of African females?”


These leaders are angry about Nadvi’s “racism”, but pretty relaxed about the rape of their own students? Let’s leave the rape situation as it is, rape of African students being normal, and fight this evil racism thing!

Good thinking there from: “Professor Nceba Gqaleni, the deputy dean of students, Bheki­themba Ngcobo, and three student leaders.”
