WINDHOEK, 02 OCT (NAMPA) – The president of the Students Representative Council (SRC) of the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST), Oscar Mwandingi, was on Tuesday suspended from that university.
In an interview with Nampa here on Wednesday, Mwandingi disclosed that he was suspended for allegedly using the university’s computer, placed in his office, for personal use and allowing other students to make use of it.
He also explained that a video containing images of himself with girls in a nightclub, taken while on holiday in January 2014, also led to his suspension.
“The images will apparently tarnish the name of NUST,' he said.
Mwandingi said he is suspended for the next two academic years, 2018 and 2019.
'I was in a hearing and I was found guilty after an investigation on me by the Ernst & Young company,” he said.
Contacted for comment, Director for Communications and Marketing at NUST, Kaitire Kandjii said the university does not publicly comment on student disciplinary matters, as it is an internal issue.
