Ndlovu's fate in the balance

By Sne Masuku | Jul 14, 2009 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

THE Mangosuthu University of Technology will soon advertise for a new vice-chancellor after the suspension of incumbent Aaron Ndlovu.

Ndlovu's contract will expire in December and his disciplinary hearing case starts this month.

The university has already charged him with mismanagement, corruption and assault.

University officials said they were confident they had a strong case against him and that the matter would soon be concluded.

But even if Ndlovu were to be cleared, the council would have to ratify his return as vice-chancellor. Insiders said he stands almost no chance of having his contract extended.

Ndlovu earns more than R1million a year. He was suspended last year pending an investigation into allegations of misconduct, fraud and corruption, and poor governance at the university in Durban.

Jonathan Jansen, the administrator appointed by former education minister Naledi Pandor to administer the university, said he would move on to the University of Free State, which had also been plagued by racial problems.

Mashupye Kgaphola has been appointed to act in Ndlovu's position.

Kgaphola is an adviser to the University of Johannesburg vice-chancellor.

He has worked at the University of Venda as professor and director of academic development - and then at the University Limpopo as a lecturer.
