A spokesperson for the University of South Africa (Unisa) has confirmed that a disciplinary process is underway following alleged racism of one of it's staff.
Rose Negota is accused of anti-black and anti-white racism against her colleagues at the university.
The South Africa Human Rights commission is also investigating claims of racism and sexism at Unisa.
The are allegations that have been leveled against Mrs Negota by staff reporting to her. An investigation was conducted by the university after we enlisted an external person who specialises in matters of harassment and bullying and so on.— Martin Ramotshela, UNISA Spokesperson
Ramotshela says the alleged victims are currently giving evidence at the hearing.
He explains why they've enlisted the help of external investigators.
We also wanted to be seen to be embarking on a process which is objective where tomorrow we cannot be accused of being biased.— Martin Ramotshela, UNISA Spokesperson
