Brian Williams expelled from UWC tells his side of the story

CapeTalk's Mike Wills (standing in for John Maytham) spoke to former UWC Council chair about his expulsion from the university. Williams has been expelled for allegedly participating in violent student protest action last year.

The expulsion is completely unlawful. I was not found guilty of any charge.

Williams said the expulsion occurred after he attempted to expose his successor Mthunzi Mdwaba for being a delinquent director, something Williams says was declared by the High Court. Williams says Mdwaba had not revealed this to Council.

It was the day after he submitted this complaint to the Public Protector, that he says he was expelled.

This crude act is an abuse of power and will be overturned by the courts.

Then UWC Council member JJ Thobane called Mike Wills and described Williams as divisive and difficult, and that he needed to go.

Thobane says Williams has harassed former Vice-Chancellor Brian O'Connell for four years, and is now doing the same to the current Vice-Chancellor Tyrone Pretorius.

He refused to cooperate with Council. He is a person who is very chaotic and interfered with the running of the university.
