Baraka Nafari, a Tanzanian, was run over by a taxi outside the Kingsway Campus in Auckland Park last week.
He was a research assistant within the Department of Economics and Econometrics.
There’s been speculation around Nafari’s death, with the university and police being accused of inaction.
His friends claim they’ve seen CCTV footage, which shows a taxi driver who knocked Nafari over, deliberately pursued him and mowed him down.
The forum’s Marc Gbaffou has called for those behind the murder to be put behind bars.
“We’re calling upon the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele to come and assist. This case cannot be hidden in this way.”
