This was after 11 names — of former and current male students accused of sexually assault and violence against women at Rhodes University — were anonymously published on Facebook.
Rhodes University permanently expelled Dyantyi in November 2017 after a disciplinary hearing that found her guilty of kidnapping, assault, defamation and insubordination.
In March, the court dismissed Dyantyi’s review application and slapped her with legal costs.
Advocacy group, the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of SA (SERI), which is fighting in her corner, dismissed the disciplinary hearing that convicted her as “procedurally flawed”.
“The punishment meted out was grossly prejudicial. The terms of her expulsion have made it practically impossible for her to enrol in any other higher education institution for the foreseeable future,” said Nomzamo Zondo, SERI’s executive director.
