|Racist UJ lecturer suspended
A University of Johannesburg lecturer was suspended pending a disciplinary hearing after Solidarity had addressed a letter to the university. The behaviour of the lecturer who made alleged racist remarks on her Twitter profile “is indicative of direct disregard for the virtuous culture and principles upheld by the university and it incites unnecessary racial tension,” Johan Botha Solidarity’s Industry Head of the Professional Industry said.
Solidarity is, however, ready to take further steps against the lecturer should the university not adequately deal with the lecturer. “Her entries on Twitter reveal a marked attack on white people which is contrary to the university’s strict policy on racism among its staff,” Botha said.
Botha explained that section 60 of the Employment Equity Act provides for action against an employer not taking the necessary disciplinary steps against an employee who is displaying racist behaviour.
