African leaders urge young people to be less aggressive at Fort Hare centenary

President Jacob Zuma and Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe are among the dignitaries who gathered to celebrate University of Fort Hare's role in fostering African leaders.

The centenary ceremony took place despite threats made by protesting students.

Xolani Gwala spoke to Natalie Malgas, EWN reporter, attending the ceremony.

He [Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe] just jumped into the land question without being apologetic about it. Reclaiming and taking back what's rightfully of Africans, he says.

The sentiment has been the same, just remembering all those that have passed through these corridors. Strong emphasis on the fact that many men and women who were taught at Fort Hare have gone on to become great individuals and significant black intellectuals.

A lot of speakers (said that) the kind of people that these leaders went on to become, we should as young people emulate them, and be less destructive and aggressive.
