UCT’s Max Price could still face motion of no confidence
The university's AGM at which the motion against Price was set to be discussed ended chaotically when student activists staged a protest.
CAPE TOWN – University of Cape Town (UCT) vice chancellor Max Price could still face another motion of no confidence despite a failed attempt to dislodge him.
The university's convocation held its annual general meeting last night, with one of the items on the agenda a motion against Price and his executive for their supposed mishandling of fees protests on campus.
The meeting, however, ended chaotically when student activists staged a protest at the venue.
Convocation comprises of UCT graduates, vice-chancellor, his deputy, academic staff and emeritus professors.
UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola said, “The discussion over the no confidence motion became so chaotic that the chair decided to adjourn the meeting without any voting.”
