Cape Town - Vice-Chancellor of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Dr Prins Nevhutalu was found guilty of gross misconduct at a disciplinary hearing, chaired by an external independent chairperson.
Dr Nevhutalu resigned before a sanction could be recommended.
This came after an investigation was done into allegations of gross misconduct.
Members of #FeesMustFall (FMF) at CPUT had accused Nevhutalu of corruption, purging students who raised the allegations, and who were involved in protest action, refusing to insource services, sexual harassment, and refusing to write off student debt despite requests from the CPUT council.
Towards the end of last year, Nevhutalu was placed on special leave pending the outcome of the process.
