Theuns du Toit, a white student at Stellenbosch University who is accused of urinating on the belongings of a 20-year-old black agricultural student, has been charged with a crime.
This is because the victim, Babalo Ndwayana, at first decided to forgive the offender, but later changed his mind after his father, Mkuseli Kaduka, convinced him that Du Toit should be held responsible for his actions.
Sunday, the incident happened at the Huis Marais home, and a video of it went viral on social media.
Kaduka told Weekend Argus on Tuesday, "My son now feels bad for the boy, and he thinks that a long court case will keep him from focusing on his schoolwork. I'm looking into ways to file the charges myself on his behalf."
The Weekend Argus was the first to report that a white student broke into Ndwayana's room and urinated all over his valuables. This included his study desk, books, and laptop.
