Management of the Vaal Triangle Campus of the North-West University has noted with disappointment, the comments made on social media relating to a message posted on e-Fundi on 22 September 2016 by Dr Louisa Meyer. The message is being misunderstood by some students and management will like to provide facts to set the record straight.

Dr Louisa Meyer has been accused of allegedly giving preferential treatment to Afrikaans speaking students enrolled on the EDTM 321 module.

Please note the following facts relating to this issue:

  • The EDTM 321 module is presented in both English and Afrikaans;
  • Dr Meyer posted a message on Thursday, 22 September 2016 on e-Fundi to her Afrikaans class – at that time, the English class had already completed their class work. Due to the student protest action that took place that week, Afrikaans students were one day behind with class work. The message was therefore intended to help the Afrikaans students catch up on their class work to be on par with the rest of the group;
  • On Wednesday, 05 October 2016, another communication was posted on e-Fundi to both groups (English and Afrikaans), informing them on what to expect for the upcoming semester tests when the campus re-open on Monday 10 October 2016.

Campus management wishes to put it on record that these allegations of favouritism are not true. As management, we reiterate our commitment to protecting the human rights of every member of our campus community – be it student or staff.

Kind regards
Campus Management
