Heritage went up in flames today💔. The Great IsiXhosa Dictionary as well as both Isigidimi Sabantsundu & Izimvo Zabantsundu were housed right there at Special Collections library. Just like that, it went up in smoke. Thoroughly heartbroken by this. #capetownfire pic.twitter.com/vSaMEu69lt

UCT STUDENTS: Please be careful of the wolf in sheep's clothing.
Not everyone who offers help is doing so from good heart.
⚠️Human traffickers are on high alert as well.#capetownfire

I see a lot of people offering accommodation to UCT students, I would like to urge students to be very careful accepting accommodation from strangers. Not everyone has good intentions. Please be careful, notify family, the Uni & friends where you're taking refuge 🙏🏾#capetownfire

I see stupid tweets making the rounds seemingly praying for only black people around Table Mountain to be safe. Have we lost our humanity? Every life counts. This is not the time for racist rhetorics. Let's pray for #CapeTown and those affected by the inferno. #capetownfire pic.twitter.com/1jalhi9JuB
