The university released a statement on Tuesday confirming Mahlangu’s suspension from the Global Banking School.

 

Although an independent institute, the school is affiliated to the university and offers an MBA programme in banking.

Mahlangu signed off on the Esidimeni project which resulted in the deaths of 141 mentally ill patients.

As the arbitration hearing into Esidimeni resumes on Wednesday morning, South Africans are waiting to find out exactly when Mahlangu will give testimony about her role in the tragedy.

Mahlangu has been suspended from the Global Banking School in London with the University of Bedfordshire saying the allegations against her in South Africa have led to her being suspended on a “without prejudice” basis.

Mahlangu led the process to relocate over 1,700 mentally ill patients from Life Esidimeni facilities to ill-equipped NGOs.

She has been subpoenaed on an urgent basis to testify at the arbitration hearings and her testimony is expected on the sixth of next month.
