PRESS STATEMENT ABOUT THE APPOINTMENT OF WSU VC, UFH COUNCIL


TUESDAY, 22 DECEMBER 2020


The Eastern Cape provincial government welcomes the appointment of Professor Rushiela Songca as the Vice Chancellor and Principal of the Walter Sisulu University. We congratulate Professor Songca for this appointment and in whishing her well for this responsibility, we strongly believe that
this appointment will bring stability to the Walter Sisulu University.

We will work with Professor Songca and her team in the work we do and in the work they do as the University. We also wish to congratulate members of the recently appointed Council for the University of Fort Hare and wish them the best of luck in leading the University, we wish them success for the programme they have set out for themselves.


Our interest in the stability and success of both the University of Fort Hare and the Walter Sisulu University is to ensure that the work we do as partners contributes to the development of the people of our province, the Eastern Cape and the people of our country, South Africa.

That is why we communicated our concerns when we saw unrest and instability at these two Universities. We are very excited by the appointment of the Vice Chancellor and Principal by WSU, and new members of the UFH Council.

We encourage university communities of both the Walter Sisulu University and the University of Fort Hare to work with the new leadership, provide support so that work done by these institutions benefits the people of our province.

For this to happen, it is important that both Universities are stable and sustainable financially.

BUILDING THE EASTERN CAPE WE WANT
