University of Johannesburg student Kamvelihle Goba took to the stage of his graduation ceremony and accused the institution of racism.

“I could not walk through that stage and pretend as if all was well. UJ has a tendency of using such ceremonies to portray this united front while it continues to exclude students and turns a blind eye against corruption,” he told TimesLIVE.

Goba said he had been suspended by the institution after he confronted an allegedly racist lecturer.

“All I did was ask Prof … why he was racist, and why he continues to be at the center of unhappiness,” he said.
