The Cape South African Jewish Board of Deputies and students from the University of Cape Town have slammed Lwazi Lushaba, a lecturer in the department of political studies at the institution, for saying Adolf Hitler “committed no crime”. TimesLive reports that in a pre-recorded lecture shared online with first-year political science students, Lushaba said that “all Hitler did was to do to white people what white people had normally reserved for black people”. The chairperson of the Cape South African Jewish Board of Deputies said its Antisemitism & Legal subcommittee was investigating the video, insisting that “the bounds of academic freedom and freedom of expression must not undermine the central aim of the constitution, which is to build a united and democratic SA based on mutual respect, understanding and human dignity”.
