Theuns du Toit's lawyer, William Fullard, says final evidence was submitted on Thursday and they are now awaiting the verdict.

Du Toit, who is also facing criminal charges, hit the headlines after a video of him urinating on Ndwayana’s belongings in the Huis Marais residence went viral.

Ndwayana, who filmed Du Toit relieving himself on his books and laptop in May, has opened a criminal case with the police.

High Education Minister Blade Nzimande also entered the fray, describing Du Toit's behaviour as shameful and calling for the university to take the strongest possible action against him.

Fullard says final evidence was presented on Thursday.

"At this stage I am unsure if the university will provide a report. However, what I can stress or state is that the matter was finalised now half an hour ago, finalised in the sense that all the evidence has been placed before the committee, and argument on behalf of Theuns was made and argument on behalf of the university was made.

Now the matter was postponed for outcome or judgment. They did not give us an indication but hopefully be too long."

Ndwayana has declined to comment amid reports that he did not participate in the process due to perceived bias by the chair of the committee.
