Judge says ex-vice-chancellor and ex-council chair “mendaciously misled” university in report branded “hogwash” by accused

The University of Cape Town’s former vice-chancellor Mamokgethi Phakeng and former council chair Babalwa Ngonyama “mendaciously misled” the university about the resignation of a senior figure at the institution, an investigation has concluded.

The findings appear in a UCT report published on 1 November, which says Lis Lange’s contract as deputy vice-chancellor of teaching and learning was unlawfully terminated. It recommends that she receive a written public apology from UCT.
