- The EFF's Floyd Shivambu has sent a scathing post to Wits VC Adam Habib
- This is after UCT was announced as the number one university in the country
- Social media users shared their opinions about his post
Floyd Shivambu has taken to social media to shade Wits VC Adam Habib. He claims that Wits lost its ranking as the best university in the country under Habib's leadership. UCT has taken the top position as the best in the country and continent.
Shivambu posted the spicy comment on his social media page:
"Congratulations @FabAcademic for keeping UCT amongst the best in the world. @WitsUniversity used to number 1 in both country and continent until it was engulfed by the mediocrity and arrogance of @AdHabb. He’s the biggest mistake to ever happen to academic leadership anywhere!"
UCT's VC Mamokgethi Phakeng responded to the post and called out Shivambu for the attack on Habib.
"Adam is a great support for me in good & in bad times -being VC is rough. There’s no perfect VC but, putting politics aside, Adam is one of the most decent human beings and good leaders in our country. I have a lot of respect for him"
Social media users also chimed in to add their comments. Twitter user inaluK_HKT said:
"WitsUniversity as long as you are inviting the likes of Hlaudi to lecture, forget about that no1 spot!"
While Neo_Semoko said:
"Leader your comments not only are they uninformed, but they are unnecessary. What does @AdHabb have to do with the great leadership that @FabAcademic is displaying on spearing leadership of UCT? Celebrate someone's achievement without being destructive to the next. #DoBetter!!"
"UCT was always number one even before Kgethi.Wits never got top spot in SA & Africa but merely in top three.Floyd must just be taught basic mathematical & philosophical logic, his reasoning & building of arguments is too chaotic, dramatized, & divergent.learn from @AdvDali_Mpofu"
