I Onkgopotse JJ Tabane [Former UWC President 95 to 97 and Current Member of UWC Council and Trustee of the UWC Foundation]. Hereby intends to petition the registrar of UWC to convene an Emergency and Special meeting of the UWC convocation to discuss the above stated subject matters and give new direction to the Convocation of the University. This follows disturbing developments linked to the leadership of Convocation as well as the suspension by UWC Council of the President of Convocation. With The current challenges facing the Higher Education Sector the role of Convocation has to be above reproach and cannot be business as usual. This meeting has to make drastic decisions for the future of both Convocation and eventually UWC. If you support the call for such a meeting please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “I support Convocation Special Meeting” on or before 15 July 2016. I will request the Registrar to call such a meeting in the cause of August 2016. Once the meeting is set logistics for such a meeting will be communicated publicly.
