On Friday night there was an unfortunate and shameful incident in Men’s Hostel E Annexe on our campus. I am ashamed that such a thing happened in our University, and that it happened now.
Posters and photographs of our national leaders that were placed in the corridor were burnt in the middle of the night of 22 July. This is a deplorable act, and one that is simply incomprehensible. Whatever our beliefs and opinions, vandalism has no place in our University.
It is a matter of shame for us all that in the 21st century we have persons on our campus who entertain regressive prejudices. We will spare no efforts to identify and punish the perpetrators, and a Proctorial enquiry is already under way. This is also a criminal matter, and it is therefore being investigated by the police as well.
The University administration appeals to the entire campus community to maintain calm in this hour of crisis.
Please contact the Proctorial Committee if you have any information that can assist them in any way.
