Lebo is one of many women who go to university, experience gender-based violence, & then the university and police sweep the matter under the carpet.

She was attacked by a final year medical student of Stellenbosch University’s Tygerberg campus after she refused to be sexually abused by the medical student.

The young man who is a medical student at Stellenbosch University has been temporarily suspended and the Police have launched an investigation, but no arrests have been made.

When contacted the Senior Director of Student Affairs at the University,Dr Choice Makhetha confirmed the report in a statement that the alleged perpetrator was temporarily suspended as a disciplinary investigation is set to take place.

 

“Over the past weekend we have been made aware of a report of an assault of a female student by a male student in Ubuntu House, a residence on the Tygerberg campus, in the early hours of Saturday, 4 July 2020. The matter has been reported according to the Disciplinary Code for Students to the appropriate University structures, including the Equality Unit. Furthermore, the female student has made a statement to the South African Police Service. She has received counselling and we will follow up with further support,” said Makheta.

“The male student was temporarily suspended from SU on Sunday, 5 July 2020 by the Rector, Prof Wim de Villiers, pending a disciplinary investigation. In terms of the Disciplinary Code for Students, this suspension is subject to a confirmation of suspension hearing by the University’s Central Disciplinary Committee that must take place within five (5) days of this suspension,” she explained.
