University council to implement governance recommendations

The council of South Africa’s University of Cape Town says it’s ready to implement the recommendations of an independent panel which probed governance matters at the institution between 2018 until last year, writes Ntuthuzelo Nene for Eye Witness News.

The 179-page report released earlier this month found former University of Cape Town vice-chancellor Mamokgethi Phakeng and council chairperson Babalwa Ngonyama guilty of serious governance failures.

It specifically mentions that the pair had misled the university about the resignation of former deputy vice-chancellor for learning and teaching, Lis Lange. The report also questioned the reasons for the departure of many executives at the institution.
