Durban - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has been asked to investigate the University of KwaZulu-Natal, a spokesperson for her office confirmed on Thursday.

She had received a request from a group calling itself the Concerned Citizens Group to investigate 32 complaints ranging from plagiarism to mismanagement and abuse of power.

Spokesperson Oupa Segalwe said: "The Public Protector received the complaint yesterday [Wednesday] and she will be assessing it for jurisdiction and to establish if there is merit to the claims. Only after this process will she decide whether to investigate or not."

Kamal Panday, a spokesperson for the group, said it consisted of numerous people from alumni to staff members, but he could not reveal their identities. The size of the group was not clear.

Comment could not immediately be obtained from the university.
