unisaeNCA reports that the University of SA (Unisa) on Friday said it had taken note of and was gravely concerned about allegations of sexual harassment and possibly rape against one of its employees at its Centre for Early Childhood Education (UCECE).  

The university said, categorically, that it had zero-tolerance towards all forms of harassment in the workplace and where complaints of harassment were brought to its attention, they were fully investigated and pursued vigorously, until they reached finality.  The institution said it had "as a matter of procedure" placed two employees on suspension.  The same matter has apparently been reported to the SA Police Service (SAPS), which was conducting its own investigation.  The university has undertaken to co-operate fully with the SAPS investigation.
