302 employees probed in UKZN medical school scam

Dr Albert van Jaarsveld, vice-chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), has indicated that investigations into an admissions scam were still underway.

He explained that a team had imaged more than 363 electronic devices that were seized from staff suspected of being involved in the elaborate scam. Van Jaarsveld explained: “The university’s forensic services unit and independent external forensic audit firm, Deloitte, concluded a wholescale search-and-seizure exercise that was conducted across our five campuses.

The initial focus of the operation was 286 employees, however, the number had subsequently increased to 302 employees.” He added that two offices have been searched and additional documents and a computer have been seized. One person has already been dismissed.
