bladenzimandeTimesLIVE reports that Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation Blade Nzimande on Friday announced he was withdrawing the notice to place the troubled University of SA (Unisa) under administration.

A government gazette published on Thursday read: “I, Dr BE Nzimande, MP, the minister of higher education, science and innovation, hereby withdraw Government Notice No 4015 published in Government Gazette No 49582 Vol 700 on October 27 2023, that announced the decision to appoint an administrator for the University of SA.” Nzimande's move to abort this action came after the institution filed an urgent application to oppose this in the Pretoria High Court. The court ordered Nzimande to retract the government gazette notice issued wherein he announced the appointment of an administrator for Unisa. Nzimande had appointed the former vice-chancellor of the University of Johannesburg, Prof Ihron Rensburg, to act as administrator for two years after dissolving Unisa’s council.
