Wits accuses students of lying, tells them to remove anti-Israel exhibition
The University of the Witwatersrand has asked students to remove their anti-Israel exhibition from the Library Lawns‚ accusing them of lying to management.
"The space was booked for the Orienteering Club under false pretences. It is now being used to promote #IsraeliApartheidWeek‚" Wits said in a statement.
"The students broke the University's rules and their behaviour is irresponsible‚ duplicitous and could put our campus at risk‚" Wits said in a statement.
Wits said the university allows peaceful protest on campus - in line with its rules‚ policies and procedures.
