In the clip, which has gone viral on social media, the student is seen urinating on the items. According to Sasco, the white student allegedly broke into a black student's room at the Huis Marais residence in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Sasco said the black student was asleep at the time and he had heard noise in his room. When he woke up, he saw the white student urinating on his desk, books and laptop.

"This hooligan not only urinated on a black student's textbooks but also damaged his laptop. We demand that the university ensures justice prevails. If not, ground forces off the EFFSC in Stellenbosch will find creative ways in its pursuit," said national spokesperson, Xola Mehlomakulu.

Mehlomakulu said it was disturbing that when the student was confronted, he said it was a tradition.

University spokesperson, Martin Viljoen, said they are deeply concerned about the seriousness of what has transpired.

"The institution strongly condemns any destructive behaviour such as the incident in the Huis Marais Residence on the Stellenbosch Campus," he said.

Viljoen said the student is not residing in the residence at the moment and necessary and decisive action will be taken based on the outcome of the investigation.
