Yekiso Commission of Inquiry

CPUT composite

On 22 February 2018 the Chairperson of Council, Nogolide Nojozi, informed the CPUT community of the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry into the conduct of, and alleged breakdown in, relations between the CPUT Council, the Senior Management and students as well as certain external stakeholders. This follows the protracted and, at times, violent student protests over a period of three years spanning from 1 January 2014 up to and including 30 September 2017.

The Commission, which consists of Judge James Yekiso and Advocate Willem Heath SC, undertakes to investigate all issues referred to in its Terms of Reference impartially, objectively, and without favour or prejudice. Written submissions from institutional structures and stakeholders are invited and the submission forms along with the full Terms of Reference are attached below.

It is anticipated that the required submissions will assist The Commission in understanding the activities and conduct of these CPUT stakeholders and ultimately make findings to eliminate inefficiencies, ensure fairness, enhance service delivery and promote sound labour practices and a healthy institutional culture within the University. The Yekiso Commission commenced its operations on 5 March 2018 and will submit a final report with findings and recommendations to Council by no later than 31 July 2018.
