Hearing on urinating incident completed
The disciplinary hearing of Theuns du Toit, who urinated on a fellow Stellenbosch University student's belongings, wrapped up yesterday, reports News24.
Du Toit appeared before the university's Central Disciplinary Committee (CDC) for allegedly violating the student code of conduct.
He was caught on camera urinating on first-year agriculture student Babalo Ndwayana's desk, laptop and books.
Yesterday, the CDC sat for the second day of the hearing.
Ndwayana, the victim, was absent after he walked out of proceedings on Wednesday, claiming bias by the committee chair.
Despite the walkout, the CDC continued its work, wrapping up with arguments from Du Toit's legal representatives. Eight witnesses are said to have appeared before the CDC.
Stellenbosch University spokesperson Martin Viljoen said the CDC indicated that, due to the complexity of the matter and the amount of evidence to be considered, they were unable to provide an immediate outcome.
‘They will take time to consider the evidence and provide a written outcome. A date for when this process will be completed is not available yet.’
Du Toit's attorney, Andrew Fullard, said they had been hoping for an outcome on the matter yesterday.
