Cape Town - Social media has been divided following the remarks made by in a UCT student’s dissertation.

Prominent #FeesMustFall activist Masixole Mlandu tweeted a few pages from his politics Honours research project titled “The Coloniser/Colonised Dialectic: A look into the settler - colonialism as a socio-economic order of South Africa”.

The acknowledgement section thanked his mother, adviser and friends, and ended thanking the Pan-Africanist Student Movement of Azania for fighting for the emancipation of black people. It concluded: “One settler, one bullet”  which is what caused an uproar on social media .

UCT vice-chancellor Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng initially congratulated the student but has since distanced herself from the threats of violence in the dissertation.

“Like the VC, UCT distances itself and we do not condone such language It’s divisive and, in our view, not constructive,” UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola said in a statement.
