CPUT under investigation for corruption
By Tarryn Le Chat
According to the Cape Times, days before its council is to attend a special meeting on allegations of corruption at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), unions have called for a forensic auditor's investigation into claims that some council members have financial interests in the institution.
Council vice-chairman Justice Siraj Desai has spoken out strongly against council members having financial interests in the CPUT. The council is to meet on Monday. The university has been dogged by allegations of impropriety.
These came to the fore when unions slammed the handling of the selection of a new vice-chancellor last year following the merging of the Peninsula and Cape technikons to form the CPUT.
