On Saturday, members of the council will debate an independent investigation into vice-chancellor Mamokgethi Phakeng and council chairperson Babalwa Ngonyama.

Both are accused of gross misconduct.

According to News24, the meeting agenda has already been distributed to all members, with the discussion about an independent probe, led by a retired judge, scheduled for late Saturday afternoon.

The Academic Union, which represents about 600 staff members, wants the meeting to take place without the participation or undue influence of the council’s chair, deputy chair, and vice-chancellor, according to its president, Professor Kelley Moult.

Phakeng, according to Ngonyama, did not want Lange to continue as deputy, whereas Phakeng and Ngonyama both told the Senate that Lange left for personal reasons.

According to UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola, leaders of the institution will address governance and procedural issues through a credible process with the buy-in of all stakeholders, as previously reported by News24.
