Cape Town – UCT’s Campus Protection Services has launched an investigation after the institution’s vice-chancellor, Mamokgethi Phakeng, was threatened while walking from her vehicle yesterday.
The shocked Phakeng took to social media to express her discomfort.
She would not go into detail of how she was threatened, only saying: “My heart is beating fast, I am sweating and angry. Thanks to the person who threatened me this morning as I was walking from my car to my office.
‘‘I refuse to waste UCT money on a driver or bodyguard. Go ahead and do what you want.”
Later she sent out another message saying: “Thank you. My day is not stolen, I am fine and continuing as if nothing ever happened.”
