PRETORIA - The University of Pretoria has confirmed that it's investigating an incident at its Taaibos residence where black students allegedly hurled racial abuse at their white counterparts.

This comes as two female students are disciplined for the so-called ' blackface' incident last month.

The two women were photographed dressed up as domestic workers, with pillows stuffed in to their pants to make their behinds look bigger and their faces painted black.

The university's Nicolize Mulder says the latest incident is being investigated, however, no formal complaint has been laid against any individual.

It's alleged two black students threatened several others on 4 September saying they wanted to kill all the whites.

AfriForum's Monique du Randt says Tuks security has reviewed surveillance footage to establish the identities of the two culprits but it's too dark to identify the men.

She says the university is not giving the incident the urgent attention it requires.

Du Randt believes the incident could have been sparked by the recent Student Representative Council elections, where AfriForum won half of the seats.
