Theuns du Toit is on suspension for barging into Babalo Ndwayana’s room and urinating on his desk.

"We're heading into exam season and this can't be something that plagues the minds of students. Our minds, our focus needs to be on furthering our own education but we cannot continue knowing that there's a student, one of us, who may not be able to do that because of such a traumatic event," Kobokana said.

A female student is receiving counselling following a separate racism incident at the university.

The university's campus management said that racist remarks were allegedly made against her at last week's law faculty dance.
