A video of a man reportedly mastur_bating at a University of Stellenbosch library has surfaced.
In the video, which has since gone viral, the man can be seen sitting with papers on the desk and his right hand moving under the desk.
Following that, it seems like the staff was notified of the actions of the man and in another video the man is seen with his hands behind his back.
The man was being escorted out of the library by what appear to be campus security guards.
According to News24, the university confirmed it was aware of the video.
The university said campus security escorted the man out, at the request of library staff.
“He had earlier signed in as a visitor. The University is investigating the incident as a matter of urgency,” it said in a statement.
University of Stellenbosch says they received an email from a student mentioning that a fellow student had witnessed the incident, and they are being approached for statements.
“While we are working urgently to confirm all the facts in this case, I want to reassure our students that their safety is our priority.
“I also want to repeat the University’s previous statements that we condemn se_xual misconduct of any kind, and are actively working to counter gender-based violence,” said the university’s Chief Operating Officer Prof Stan du Plessis.
