Professor Simon Nemutandani, the former CEO and head of school at Wits University's School of Oral Health Sciences, is contesting the non-renewal of his contract. | TebogoMonama

According to Nemutandani, who is also the president of the Health Professions Council of South Africa , he applied for a renewal of the contract in December 2020, which was due to end in August 2021.He claimed he met with the dean of health sciences, Professor Shabir Madhi, in June 2021.

After this meeting, he claimed Madhi informed him that some staff members threatened to resign if he was reappointed. They accused Nemutandani of being"tribal". He claimed he was later told that the university did not support his reappointment, which is when he approached the CCMA. "The decoupling of the positions is in line with the memorandum of agreement concluded and signed between the university and the Gauteng Department of Health, which precludes a CEO from being on the joint staff complement unless otherwise agreed."Join the 1 million News24 readers who are signed up to receive the top, must-read stories of the day in their inbox.
