The Commission of Inquiry into racism allegations at Stellenbosch University recommends that it must review its language policy.

The Khampepe Commission was established following two incidents in May.

The first one involved an altercation between white and Indian law students.

And the last one was when a former student, Theuns du Toit, urinated on a black student’s belongings.

The commission found that language is a major issue of contention at the university.

Vice-chancellor Wim de Villiers says they’re still going to study the report and its recommendations.

β€œThe commission now made recommendations – and identified blind spots – to help improve the university culture of racial diversity, equity and inclusion. The academic integrity of Stellenbosch University, the quality of our qualifications and research, and effective and proper administrative governance are all non-negotiable.”
