Molefe will still get his R2.2m salary

2011-08-18 18:00
Pretoria - Professor Johnny Molefe, whose appointment as Tshwane University of Technology vice chancellor was revoked, will continue getting his salary of almost R2.2m a year, according to a report on Thursday.

Director General in the department of higher education Gwebinkundla Qonde said Molefe would continue being paid in terms of his contracts as he remained in the employ of the university, Pretoria News reported.

"The administrator will determine what work he will be doing," he said.

However, council members would not be paid by the university as the council did not exist anymore and their term had expired.

Earlier this week, the university was placed under administration and Molefe's appointment was revoked by Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande.

Professor Themba Mosia has been appointed administrator.

Qonde said Mosia would run the institution for a period not exceeding two years, subject to a review of progress after 12 months. He has "substantial" experience as registrar at North West University.

The decision to place TUT under administration came two weeks after allegations that Molefe had used a revoked evaluation certificate when applying for the post.

The department has spoken out against this, saying circumstances surrounding Molefe's appointment had seriously compromised the academic integrity and reputation of the institution.

"By this action and others, it has shown that it has failed to take seriously the recommendations of the independent assessor and has deliberately ignored the minister's reasonable request for council to postpone the appointment until he had decided whether to appoint an administrator or not," the department said.

The report of the independent assessor, published in the government gazette on November 22 2010, identified serious problems in the governance and management of TUT, which stem from the human resource portfolio of the institution.
