Rhodes University announced last year it had expelled a student implicated in the rape of a first-year student.
The student was barred from studying or setting foot on the campus for a decade.
While the third-year BCom student was pronounced guilty of the rape by a university panel, which included legal experts, the local deputy director of public prosecutions Malherbe Marais declined to prosecute.
In 2016, the son of a prominent politician in Zimbabwe, a popular comedian, a journalist and several student leaders were among 11 men accused of rape at the university.
In 2016, females from the Wits University, some of whom marched bare-
breasted, embarked on a silent protest against rape and violence on the campus.
Earlier this year, a Wits' newsletter reported that a former SRC member had been arrested for rape. The man was alleged to have raped a person at one of the institution's residences.
He was dismissed from the university.
