University management discuss the institution’s commitments towards Reitz colleagues
2014-03-17

Detailed report by Dr Choice Makhetha (pdf)

It has been six years since the Reitz incident happened at the University of the Free State (UFS).

Since this day the UFS has achieved great strides in restoring the dignity of the five colleagues and ensuring their financial security.

The commitment to empower these colleagues has always been a priority to the UFS and members of the senior management played an active role in helping them to establish Mamello Trading 864 CC, a cleaning company.

On Tuesday 18 March 2014, the senior management met with the five colleagues once again at the Bloemfontein Campus to reflect on what have been done to ensure that the UFS meets the obligations, as set out in the Deed of Settlement.

Future commitment towards our five colleagues were also discussed.

On Thursday 19 June 2014 Mamello Trading 864 CC will be formally launched to create an opportunity to introduce the business to the market and the public.

Prof André Keet, Director of the Institute for Reconciliation and Social Justice, also took the opportunity to speak about the newly established Human Rights Desk at the Institute.

Please see the attached document for a complete update on the case and agreements as noted in the Deed of Settlement.
