Is it really privilege when kids doing 7 year courses are under threat of not writing 2016 finals? #TakeWitsBack https://t.co/rpWSbVxznI

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.
