The affordable education loan option
Pretoria - A Pretoria University philosophy lecturer has quit after writing in a blog that raping babies is a “black phenomenon”, The Times newspaper reported on Friday.
Pretoria University spokesman Nicolize Mulder told the daily that lecturer Louise Mabille had resigned and that an investigation was underway, but added that she had been writing in her personal capacity.
Mabille wrote on the Afrikaans website Praag: “Naturally, it is much easier to endlessly complain about 'Calvinism' than to ask the question on why the rape of babies is a cultural phenomenon among black ethnic groups.”
Mabille, who resigned with immediate effect on Thursday night, told the newspaper she “deeply regrets having written the piece and causing harm or pain to anyone”. - Sapa
