“Hitler committed no crime” Lushaba, DA rages



The DA will lodge a complaint against UCT lecturer, Lwazi Lushaba, with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) following his racist comments regarding Adolf Hitler on a pre-recorded lecture. 

Reports confirm that Lushaba made the following comments:

Hitler committed no crime. All Hitler did was to do to white people what white people had normally reserved for black people.”

The Holocaust was unequivocally a crime against humanity orchestrated by Hitler. The DA therefore strongly condemns the comments made by Lushaba.

His comments were not only racist, offensive and vile, but also completely insensitive to the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and the Jewish community as a whole. 

South Africa’s Jewish community will today observe Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. In remembering the victims of the Holocaust, we must place a renewed sense of responsibility on those in positions of power and influence to defend the truth and to defend our democracy against any racist or anti-Semitic sentiments. 

Lushaba has a long history of offensive and controversial actions. In 2019, he allegedly took exception to one of the contender’s in UCT’s election of its Dean of Humanities being Tanzanian and not South African. In an interview with Power FM, Lushaba stated that “reason and rationality are white”.  Lushaba was also suspended by Wits back in 2015 for “participating in activities which were not conducive to free and fair elections and were intolerant to a democratic society”.

The DA has taken note that UCT will probe Lushaba’s comments and we urge the institution’s Vice-Chancellor Mamokgethi Phakeng to place him on suspension pending the investigation.

Political Science. It takes heat like to do to white people, because all Hitler did Hitler committed no crime. All he did was to do to white people, what white people had reserved for us, black people. And so he’s crime he had a crime was to do unto white people. What White people had thought was right to do only to black people. And so, we must see the hollow cast in exactly the same way that we must see the massacre of the Herero people, in exactly the same way, we must see the Queenstown massacre, and several other massacres that happened across the continent. We must not privilege, one massacre over the others. But you know why we privilege one over others, it is because more than disciplinary knowledge privileges that one because as we’ve just seen the institutional approach became delegitimize simply because it was unable to preempt white people killing each other. Hitler killing the Jews, that it was not able to preempt white people killing black people in Namibia and in South Africa seems not to matter in its life. Okay, so we’ve made the point sufficient. The institutional approach becomes dominant from the 1920s until the 1930s until Hitler does to white people what white people had reserved for black people. So what this shows us is the fact that the forward movement of the discipline has never been informed by the lived experiences of black people, but rather by the lived experience of white people, because it is when white people die, that the discipline shows any forward movement. When clever people die. It is not. So the legal, institutional approach became delegitimize as a result of its failure to preempt what Hitler did to white people.

Dr Lushaba

The Cape SA Jewish Board of Deputies has described comments by Professor Lwazi Lushaba regarding Adolf Hitler as hate speech. The University of Cape Town has launched an investigation into comments allegedly made by Lushaba that Adolf Hitler ‘committed no crime’.

Meanwhile a lot of people have tried to rationalise his position by drawing a parallel to what Colonial masters did to Africans.

Dr Lwazi Lushaba teaches Political Science from an African perspective. The 1904 genocide in Namibia wasn’t a crime because Blacks weren’t human in law. Same was true during WW2, therefore ‘Hitler committed no crime, all he did was do to Whites what was reserved for Blacks.’


From slavery, colonialism to this day being black does not constitute being human. European epistemologies excludes us from humanity. Dr Lwazi Lushaba is actually protesting against colonial education/ knowledge.

De Klerk said Apartheid was NOT crime against humanity while Helen Zille said colonialism was not all bad & nothing happened to them. Dr Lwazi Lushaba said Hitler committed no crime & nothing should happen to him. Anyone who is offended by Hitler’s actions should just get over it.

So the “stop living in the past” gang are very upset because Dr Lwazi Lushaba said Hitler commited no crime. All Hitler did was to do to white people what white people had normally reserved for black people. I thought this was in the past & they should move on like they tell us.


From the Wits student Dlamini to the UCT lecturer Lushaba, the positive referencing of Hitler is more than attention-seeking behaviour by the intellectually vacuous. They reveal the utter depravity of the public discourse on university campuses today

Corrupt ANC members won’t be protected by party – Cyril Ramaphosa




Corrupt ANC members won’t be protected by party – Cyril Ramaphosa

 “State capture took place under our watch as the governing party,” ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa told the Zondo Commission today.

This was part of Ramaphosa’s opening address at the inquiry where he is expected to be questioned on state capture allegations by the commission.

He is appearing in his capacity as former ANC deputy president and as the current head of the ruling party.

Ramaphosa said state capture took off in the party because of the divisions that have manifested in the ANC since 1994.

He admitted that the ruling party could have done more to prevent corruption which he said has adversely affected the party and the country.

“State capture took place under our watch as the governing party. It involved some members and leaders of our organisation and it found fertile ground in the divisions, weaknesses and tendencies that have developed in our organisation since 1994,” Ramaphosa said.

He said: “We all acknowledge that the organisation could and should have done more to prevent the abuse of power and the misappropriation of resources that defined the era of state capture.”

He maintained that the party also admits that it made mistakes as it sought to execute the mandate it was given by the voters.

The ANC leader attempted to assure the inquiry that the movement does not support members who commit corruption and they will not be protected by the party.

“Such members must face the full legal consequences of their actions. They cannot rely on the ANC for support or protection, nor may they appeal to the principle of collective responsibility,” he said.

According to Ramaphosa, the era of state capture would be “relegated to history”.

“We acknowledge to the people of South Africa that we did not always live up to the values and principles that have defined the movement for over more than a century of its existence.

“We are determined and we undertake to work alongside all South Africans to ensure that the era of state capture is relegated to history and that the excesses that took place may never again occur in our country,” he said.

The inquiry continues.

Xenophobia: Some South African warn companies employing foreigners in SA




Some South African warn companies employing foreigners in SA

South Africans threaten to visit all companies hiring foreigners instead of locals. The feud between foreigners and local South Africans continues, and it is like a bubble about to burst.

South Africans on Twitter are suggesting that they should visit every company that is employing foreigners especially undocumented migrants and Undocumented foreigners instead of locals in protest. They mentioned that they should not let this go on, this new idea came when a South African noted on Twitter locals always inquire from Zimbabweans whether there are any jobs available. They noted that Zimbabweans are always the first to know when jobs are available.

It is intensifying as arrangements are being made as some are saying that they should pick a date and visit these companies which are doing a disservice to South Africans. South African suffer as they are unemployed, but you will never come across an unemployed foreigner they are calling it betrayal by both traitor employers and traitor government departments.

They are calling for the setting of dates to fix it saying that it is not proper to have more Zimbabwean foreigners working than South Africans. 

They noted that that is against the law but the government is doing nothing about it. It has been suggested in the past by some foreigners that South Africans are just lazy as employment is there. However South Africans have refuted this claiming saying that they are not lazy but will not work for peanuts or be exploited like what foreigners are doing.

Another South African pointed out that one of the shops hiring foreigners is Spar saying that all the security guards are undocumented migrants from Zimbabwe. Another also lamented over how foreigners have taken over saloons, retails and shops in the CBD from South Africans. Things are set to intensify as tension rises and if this goes into action it might not end well.
