UCT investigates lecturer following offensive Adolf Hitler remarks

The University of Cape Town (UCT) is investigating a lecturer who made a comment claiming that Adolf Hitler “committed no crime.”

Political science lecturer Lwazi Lushaba made the statement to his first-year students in a pre-recorded lecture which was done for online learning.

Lushaba made the following remarks: “Hitler committed no crime. All Hitler did was to do to white people what white people had normally reserved for black people.”

UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola told TimesLIVE that the matter is being dealt with through all appropriate channels.

The chairperson of the Cape South African Jewish Board of Deputies, said its anti-Semitism and legal subcommittee is also investigating the video.
