New probe into Unisa scandal

Blade Nzimande, the higher education minister, has now appointed an independent accesor to prove into the Unisa scandal. 

The move follows a damning 119-page report by a ministerial task team presented to Nzimande almost a year ago, which recommended the appointment of an administrator.

In a letter dated July 28, addressed to Unisa’s council chair, James Maboa, Nzimande said he “remains deeply concerned about the prevailing volatile situation at the university, with unending allegations of misconduct and mismanagement which continue to subject it to serious reputational damage.

“In the interest of public accountability, it is my belief that the appointment of an independent assessor is the appropriate mechanism to investigate and establish the veracity of the reports before me, as well as the council’s counter-assertions against the backdrop of public altercations among critical stakeholders and management.”

He said that “considering the degree of the allegations that have been made over time”, the independent assessor will be required to conduct a detailed analysis.
