A picture doing the rounds on social media shows a young man, said to be in a UCT residence, wearing the t-shirt.

The university said it was investigating this incident and would take the necessary actions. 

"Suspend the student immediately," said Ouma Mpela in reply to the Facebook post.

"I do not care what his issues are; he is not speaking for anyone, especially not for me. Inciting violence should be a punishable offence."
