Media statement by the vice-chancellor of the NWU, Prof Dan Kgwadi It has come to our attention that on Wednesday 25 May 2016, some students of the North-West University’s (NWU’s) Mafikeng Campus were engaged in untoward behaviour towards the marketing and public relations team of one of South Africa`s well-known artists, Mr Refiloe Phoolo – popularly known as Cassper Nyovest. The team was visiting the campus to organise promotions ahead of an event due to take place on Friday, 27 May 2016. Whatever the reason for this unfortunate incident, management strongly condemns such behaviour. In light of this the NWU management wishes to apologise to the marketing and public relations team of Cassper Nyovest and to Cassper Nyovest himself. The university can never condone such actions by certain students, whose behaviour is contrary to the values of tolerance, right of association and respect that we, as an institution embrace. The NWU is very proud of, and will always support national and local talent such as Mr Refiloe Phoolo (Cassper Nyovest). Young talent must be afforded the dignity and respect they deserve.
