CAPE TOWN - The father of the victim of the alleged racist incident said it is too late for apologies and plans to allow the university and police to complete their investigations. A video of du Toit urinating on Babalo Ndwayana’s belongings emerged and sparked outrage throughout the country.
Mkuseli Kaduka who is the father of Ndwayana said he has no intention of meeting Theuns du Toit’s father, Rudi until the matter has been dealt with legally. The incident that occurred at the Stellenbosch university’s Huis Marais residence is said to have been racially motivated.

Kaduka said he waited three days for an apology from du Toit or his father and did not receive anything. During an interview with TimesLIVE, he said du Toit’s father tried to reach out only after charges were laid against the student.
Kaduka said it was disappointing that they kept quiet and he hoped that the situation could have been resolved through talks at the time.

Mkuseli Kaduka said he is glad that his son, Babalo Ndwayana, captured the incident involving Theuns du Toit on video. Kaduka believes that the video clip has exposed the racism that is “still plaguing” the university. The outraged father said the university needs to implement systems that prevent incidents of racism from happening in the future.
Kaduka said he never expected his 20-year-old son to be the victim of a racist attack. News24 reported that the university has booked a fight for Ndwayana to rest at home until his exams begin. The father also called for the incident to be investigated urgently as there is “irrefutable evidence” showing the act being committed.
