Nzimande Calls NW University an Apartheid Enclave

Blade Nzimande, believes the North West University’s Potchefstroom campus is an apartheid enclave

Minister of higher education and training, Blade Nzimande, believes the North West University’s Potchefstroom campus is an apartheid enclave - a hostile and foreign environment for people who are not white Afrikaners.

Following a video clip showing students performing the Nazi-styled ‘Heil Puk’ salute, Nzimande was scornful of the university’s previous vice-chancellor, Theuns Eloff, who retired just after the video emerged, stating that he had not been prepared to transform Pukke - the traditional name for the Potchefstroom campus of North West University.

Nzimande is of the view that the merger of the three former universities in 2004 - Potchefstroom, Vaal and Mafikeng - had been designed to keep the Potchefstroom campus Afrikaans and white, where initiation rituals for new students were structured to achieve this, and violate human rights and dehumanise first-year students.
