A key witness who claims he was forced to resign at the University of Zululand (UniZulu) after witnessing a student allegedly being raped by a senior academic is accusing the institution of defaming his name with allegations that he was fired for plagiarism.

The witness, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the student who was allegedly raped on campus by her professor, said he had instead resigned to protect his family, who were being threatened.

Meanwhile, the student’s family has denied that they begged the university to drop the probe as claimed by the university to City Press in June when it broke the story.
