After Tim Osrin’s vicious attacks on Cynthia Joni, yet more racist attacks have rocked Cape Town. This time 5 alleged UCT students viciously kicked mother of 6 Delia Adonis. Her attackers called her a "..coloured c***" and "coloured mother******" . In another attack, 19 year old UCT BCom student Djavan Arrigone has been charged with assault after he urinated on Khayelitsha taxi driver Michelle Nomgcana and reportedly said, "I don’t care if I pee on a black man". 
If we don’t take a strong stand against racially motivated violence, we’ll live in a South Africa that produces more people like Jan van Tonder, a Claremont dentist who viciously beat Muhammed Makungwa with a sjambok because he allegedly thought Mr Makungwa had broken into his BMW. 
Our educational institutions must play a role in combating this culture of racism. If enough of us come together we can demand that UCT does more than just ‘investigate the issue’. UCT has an opportunity to follow the lead of the University of Pretoria who responded to our campaign which demanded action on racism. The Vice-Chancellor at Tuks has agreed to introduce a compulsory program for all first year students to end discrimination at the University.
