“Once somebody breaches the rules and regulations, they must be sanctioned no matter how highly placed, whether it is sexual harassment, examination malpractices or extortion from students in one way or the other.

“We have so many cases now being investigated and we have referred over 10 cases of staff indiscipline, including professors to the university disciplinary committee.

“I can assure you that in the next couple of months, you will begin to see changes in the way we approach things in the university.”
