After weeks of deliberation, a date has finally been set for the disciplinary hearing of suspended Stellenbosch University student Theuns du Toit.
Du Toit was filmed urinating on fellow student Babalo Ndwayana’s belongings at the Huis Marais residence. The footage sent South Africans into a frenzy with many calling on the University to suspend Du Toit for what many believe to be ‘racist’ actions.
The University indicated that a proper investigation would be conducted before giving its final verdict. While it has refused to disclose the exact date, a source has revealed to the Cape Times that it will reportedly take place on 22 June, as per IOL.
Justice Sisi Khampepe has been appointed to lead the independent commission of inquiry. However, beyond the information the University has provided to the public, no further details have been released.
“All cases are confidential and a decision on whether the findings will be made public, may be considered by the Central Disciplinary Committee,” revealed Stellenbosch University’s Martin Viljoen.
Du Toit is currently suspended from attended classes. Along with this, he has also landed himself in trouble with the police as they look to investigate following the release of the notorious video.
