Is the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) ‘an agent of the Broederbond…a gatekeeper for white supremacist ideology?’
This was one of the questions and comments directed towards the liberal think-tank’s chief executive officer, Frans Cronje, after he tweeted: “UCT’s [University of Cape Town] reputation will take a step downwards after events of tonight. Can it recover or is it doomed to become Cape Town’s ‘bush college’?
Cronje’s post was in reaction to the UCT council’s decision to remove the statue of Cecil John Rhodes from its Upper Campus.
In reaction to the tweet‚ many users of the social network demanded to know what Cronje meant by ‘bush college’.
