Stellenbosch University has announced it’s probing another case of alleged racism on campus.

It says the incident took place during a law faculty dance event last week Thursday.

The university says it’s talking to all those who attended the event to get more information.

This is the second such incident to be reported this week.

A white student was caught on video urinating on the belongings of Babalo Ndwayana.

De Villiers says people must be respected.

“I am truly sorry about the pain that was caused by this incident. Stellenbosch University’s (SU) main priority is to provide an inclusive environment for all its students and staff and to maintain a safe community where social cohesion is promoted to provide quality tertiary education for all.”

“SU strongly condemns any destructive or discriminatory behaviour that infringes the rights of any student or member of the community of the University,” he said.

“Human dignity is non-negotiable and must be respected, upheld, and restored when affected. University’s governance regulations.”
