Report recommends university be placed under administration

A report into the affairs of the University of South Africa (UNISA) that was commissioned by Minister of Higher Education Blade Nzimande recommended that the university be placed under administration, writes Ndaedzo Nethonzhe for EyeWitness News.

This was after allegations of maladministration, as well as tender irregularities involving the university’s vice-chancellor and principal, Puleng LenkaBula.
