UCT Council reaffirms commitment to strengthening governance

# The University of Cape Town’s Council has reaffirmed its commitment to rectifying past governance failures and bolstering current structures. The council says it’s ready to implement the recommendations of an independent panel which probed governance matters at the institution between 2018 and last year. The report found former UCT vice-chancellor, Mamokgethi Phakeng, and council chairperson, Babalwa Ngonyama, guilty of serious governance failures. The council says a sub-committee will establish a framework to strengthen the university’s governance.
