Victim of Stellenbosch University Urination Scandal Lays Charges

Police in South Africa (SA) are investigating a criminal complaint filed by a Stellenbosch University student who claims that a fellow student urinated on his possessions over the weekend.

"A 20-year-old complainant opened cases of housebreaking unknown, malicious damage to property and crimen injuria today [Tuesday] at about 14:30 at Stellenbosch SAPS for investigation. Investigations continues, no arrest as yet," stated police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk.

According to local media reports, the family of a 20-year-old black student who was the victim of a suspected racial incident at Stellenbosch University will file a criminal complaint against the alleged offender. The victim's family has reported a case of property damage.

After being suspended from the institution, the accused has yet to remark on the situation.

University officials investigating the case have stated that further action may be taken if he is found guilty.

The incident, which was captured on film and extensively shared, sparked anger at the university, with students demonstrating and demanding the suspected perpetrator's dismissal.

According to the viral video on social media, the victim was sleeping in his room on Sunday morning when the accused entered and urinated on his desk, books, and laptops.

The victim can be heard in a video asking the student why he is urinating on his possessions.

On Monday, the alleged was suspended by the institution and kicked out of the student residence while students gathered outside the place demanding answers and severe consequences for his actions.

In a statement, Martin Viljoen, a spokesperson for Stellenbosch University, said that the university "strongly condemns" the "destructive, cruel, and discriminatory conduct.

According to university officials, the victim is receiving counseling for the event.

South Africa has over the years, been undermined by racism even after the end of apartheid. Violence against women, the inability to deliver justice, accountability for past xenophobic violence, and violence against environmental activists are among the other human rights concerns in SA.
