A WhatsApp voice note has gone viral where a woman describes that to get Wits Vice Chancellor Adam Habib’s attention, “A white person must be killed in order to get their voices heard”.

The voice note starts with a comment on how disappointed protesters were about how Habib had handled the #FeesMustFall protest.

“So they are saying that in order to get Habib’s attention, at least one white student must die.”
