Inside Education Reporter

THE Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation, Professor Blade Nzimande, held a special ministerial meeting with the Council of the Fort Hare University last Friday.

This meeting follows the Minister’s visit to the University in June 2023, to meet with the Council regarding several concerns that were raised by the University stakeholders.

The purpose of the meeting was for the Council to provide the Minister with a progress update on the University’s response to the concerns he raised in 2023.

In addition, the Council is expected to provide the Minister with a comprehensive plan on how the University has been addressing some of the serious governance issues that have led to it becoming the focus of negative media attention.

The Council is also expected to provide the Minister with a report on the implications and impact on the governance of the arrest of so many senior university managers, including those in the Vice Chancellor’s office.
