Panyaza Lesufi takes a swipe at private Afrikaans university under construction
There is no room in a non-racial South Africa for reminders of apartheid, says Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi.
Lesufi took Twitter reposting a video by Reinhard777 showing men breaking ground for a new private Afrikaans-language university.
I just hate racism when I see one! A race-based institution in a non-racial society won’t succeed. Please don’t remind us about apartheidPanyaza Lesufi, Education MEC - Gauteng

Lesufu responded, "It is not innocent, unfortunately. They are angry because RAU, Tukkies, Stellenbosch, etc are now accommodating other races and languages. We can't go back to RAUs whether private or public, non-racialism is the future. Let's defend it
