Former UCT Vice-chancellor found guilty

Former University of Cape Town Vice-chancellor, Mamokgeti Phakeng, was found guilty of serious governance failures.

An independent panel also found Council Chairperson Babalwa Ngonyama guilty of the same charge.

The two were involved in a governance struggle at the institution.

They were found guilty of misleading the university about the resignation of a colleague. The report said the reasons for the departure of many executives at the institution were unclear and questionable.

UCT instituted the investigation last year to investigate alleged governance problems.

It is also reported that the panel also found that UCT's former deputy vice-chancellor for learning and teaching, Lis Lange, had no personal reasons to step down and that her departure was constructive dismissal.
