In a statement, the EFFSC in UP says, “The students who majority live in Hillcrest University Residence, can easily be located by CCTV and various means”
“No racism against any persons, especially black and africans will not go unpunished. The EFFSC and EFF Tshwane will ensure that justice happens and confront racism and discrimination conduct in the university and parts of society.”
