High Court decision does not interfere with UCT disciplinary process

15 September 2015 | Story by Newsroom

The University of Cape Town notes the decision of the High Court of South Africa (Western Cape Division, Cape Town) to set aside the suspension order that was placed against Chumani Maxwele. The ruling also dismisses Mr Maxwele's challenge to the University's rules and finds that the interdict Mr Maxwele sought against UCT had become moot.

This ruling does not affect the actual case Mr Maxwele faces in relation to an altercation with a lecturer and this matter will still go ahead.
