UJ lifts suspension of Prof B Mamba

​Statement by UJ Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Prof Ihron Rensburg.

I am pleased to inform you that the disciplinary hearing of Prof Bhekie Mamba, Executive Dean: Science, on charges of dishonesty and gross negligence has now been concluded, and the chairperson of the hearing, a senior external legal expert, has submitted to me his findings and recommendations. ​
The chairperson of the disciplinary hearing found Prof Mamba, “not guilty of gross dishonesty and negligence,” however found that Prof Mamba, “had showed a lack of good judgment in the management of research funds, as a consequence of which he conducted himself in a manner inconsistent with a relationship of trust and confidence”.
In light of these findings, the chairperson of the disciplinary hearing recommended, among others, that a final written warning be served on Prof Mamba.
Prof Mamba has, voluntarily, decided to step down from his position as Executive Dean: Science.​
In light of his internationally recognised contribution to water and nanotechnology research, through his well-established research group, and the valuable contribution that Prof Mamba can still make, I am also pleased that Prof Mamba has accepted, as of the 1st of April 2014, the position of Director: Institute of Water and Nano Technology at UJ.
