The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Free State province has confirmed that they are concerned by the ‘grim outcomes' for the Free State in the recent labour force survey for the first quarter of 2021 released by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA).

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has reached out to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) to request an investigation into the Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command (EFFSC) over allegations of racial discrimination at the University of Pretoria (UP).

Despite AfriForum claiming responsibility for placing stickers at the campus entrances, the DA emphasizes the importance of addressing the reported racial tension.

Chantel King, DA Shadow Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation, is urging Prof Themba Mosia, the Interim Vice-Chancellor and Principal of UP, to intervene promptly to address the escalating racial tensions at the institution. Numerous concerns have been raised on social media platforms regarding white students being denied access onto campus.

The DA highlights that the EFFSC’s attempts to prevent certain students from entering the campus go against the principles outlined in the Constitution of South Africa, including the rights to human dignity, freedom of movement, and association. The party also criticizes the university council for not intervening earlier, given the various allegations surrounding racial incidents that have emerged.

In emphasizing the importance of campuses being safe spaces where differences can be resolved professionally and cooperatively, the DA condemns actions that undermine progress towards a just and equal society. The party insists that university councils cannot remain silent in the face of such instances and calls for prioritizing social cohesion to ensure a smooth academic year.

While AfriForum has claimed responsibility for placing stickers at the campus entrances to shed light on racial exclusion and what they perceive as the university’s double standards, the DA stresses that these actions should not distract from addressing the alleged racial discrimination carried out by the EFFSC at UP.

“AfriForum’s recent actions do not undermine the need to investigate and address the reported racial discrimination by the EFFSC at UP,” states Chantel King.
