On Tuesday evening, my daughter was attending a ballroom dancing event on the campus of the University of Cape Town. As she attempted to walk up the stairs to Jameson Hall mobs barred her way and threatened her. Their curses and hostility were directed at anyone who was White. Vile graffiti desecrated the memorial to students who had died in the First World War and students were chanting that all Whites must be killed.
A shack was built across the middle of one of the most important roads on the university campus, disrupting traffic. Rubbish bins were being burnt.
Then members of the Rhodes Must Fall protesters invaded the residences nearby, forced themselves into the kitchens and stole food, intimidating residents and threatening Whites.
