UWC declines Mampintsha

The University of the Western Cape told TygerBurger since the news was made public that the institution has declined to host an event by Mampintsha’s company West Ink Production to use their stadium on Saturday 4 May, there has been an “overwhelming support” by the students.

This is according to spokesperson Gasant Barder who explained that the allegations against Mandla Maphumulo, better known as Mampintsha, of gender-based violence, led to the decision.

“The event application, by West Ink Production to use the University’s Sports Stadium was under consideration by the relevant structures on campus. “However, developments last week have put the application in a different light,” explained Barder.

Mampintsha appeared in court last week after he was captured on video assaulting singer Babes Wodumo, whose real name is Bongekile Simelane. “While the university respects due process and the rule of law, it cannot in good conscience allow an event to take place on its campus involving an individual who has been implicated in an incident of gender-based violence,” said Barder.

He further told the newspaper that if the university had opted to go ahead with the event, it could be damaging to the reputation of UWC: “University management has decided to protect the integrity of being against gender-based violence.”
