In our commitment to promote academic excellence, the lecturer has been placed on suspension pending the outcomes of investigations and all procedures and guidelines of the university harassment policy will be applied. The policy strongly condemns any form of sexual harassment and any person who feels that she or he has been sexually harassed may lodge a complaint with the management of the university,” the statement read.
