Initiation ritual may lead to cultism in University of Johannesburg

The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is being called to put an end to the initiation of new entrants into the university by senior students, as this may lead to cultism and gang membership.

A Nigerian student at the university reveals that senior students bully and initiate first-year students.

There are complaints by students at UJ’s Kilimanjaro residents that the initiation process is oppressive and demeaning.

Fear has gripped the heart of many first-year students and their parents.

The initiation ritual is reducing UJ campuses into a “bully camp”. Students are forced to attend events and refusal may attract punishment.

The Nigerian student who reported the case to nigeriansinsouthafrica.co.za fears this horrendous initiation process may lead to cultism and development of gang membership at the university.

The university advises students to report any form of initiation or intimidation and promises to deal with any culprit accordingly.
