JOHANNESBURG - Durban University of Technology (DUT) student Sandile Ndlovu, who was stabbed on campus almost two weeks ago, has died. He died in hospital on Saturday morning.

Ndlovu was assaulted in a lecture room at the university’s Steve Biko campus on 16 September and was in intensive care since then.

Family spokesperson and uncle to Ndlovu, Tshepo Mokoena, confirmed his passing.

β€œSandile passed on this morning and as a result, I informed his friends and all his supporters on social media before inaccurate information could be published,” Mokoena said.

Meanwhile, nine DUT students who were arrested for allegedly attempting to set a security guard alight during protests at the institution after Ndlovu’s stabbing were released on R2,000 bail each on Friday.
