The University of Cape Town has been accused by its own Ombud of refusing to investigate allegations of "bullying" by the vice-chancellor, Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng.

Instead, UCT's Council is accused of trying to ensure this matter is "brushed under the carpet" – because the vice-chancellor is a black woman.
