Stellenbosch University Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Deresh Ramjugermath stated that the university viewed the incident in a serious light.

He added that the university has taken note of the CDC's decision to expel Du Toit and study the details of the finding.

“The university viewed this case in a very serious light. This was evident in, amongst others, the original temporary suspension of Mr Du Toit from the University while also appointing Justice Sisi Khampepe to lead an independent commission of enquiry into alleged racism at SU.
"The University takes a zero-tolerance approach to racism, discrimination, prejudice and conduct which assails the dignity of another person. SU management took note of the sanction imposed and will be studying the details of the CDC’s finding,” Prof Ramjugernath said.
