A fourth-year Wits University student was allegedly racially abused by one of her classmates outside a lecture room on Monday morning.

“I will f*ckin’ kill you, you black bitch,” was one of the threats made by a white student, according to Sinethemba Memela, a law student, told Wits campus publication Vuvuzela.

According to Memela, the incident started after she “confronted” two female students during the lecture as they mocked the accent of senior lecturer, Dr Malebakeng Forere over her pronunciation of the word “patent”.

“I turned around and asked them why does it matters how she says patent, we all know what she means,” said Memela.

Soon after that, Memela said she heard one of the girls refer to her as an “unnecessary bitch”.

“I said you’re an unnecessary black bitch”, said one of the white students when Memela asked them to repeat what they had said.

After the lecture, Memela said she was pulled by one of her aggressors outside the lecture venue, where she says the student “pinched my breasts, daring me to beat her”.

Wits Campus control confirmed Memela has filed a report.
