Black students rally in support of expelled Wits SRC president

Support is pouring in for the University of Witwatersrand’s expelled SRC president.

Mcebo Dlamini’s Facebook post that mentioned Hitler has sparked outrage from the South African Union of Jewish Students.

Students from the Rhodes Must Fall campaign and activist group, Open Stellenbosch, are marching in support of Mcebo Dlamini.

The Higher Education Transformation Network also says the decision to expel him was harsh.

It says action is being taken against Dlamini when other students from Cape Town and Stellenbosch universities got a slap on the wrist for racist incidents.

The Network was referring to, among others, the white students who painted their faces black.
