Deputy Minister of Information and Publicity Energy Mutodi has labelled all Midlands State University graduates as people with low IQ.

Mutodi was replying to an online figure who had implied that Mutodi was denigrating the status of the University of Capetown as he is a graduate there.

Mutodi replied to the figure saying “UCT is Africa’s best university. You can apply but you certainly don’t qualify judging by your IQ. Try MSU instead.”

The statement was interpreted to mean that low IQ students can only qualify for Midlands State University.

Calls have been made for Mutodi to apologise first to the Chancellor of all state university President ED Mnangagwa, vice-chancellor, and all MSU undergraduates and postgraduates.
