The university released a statement about its decision to bring in an external company to help assist Ncube, TimesLIVE reported.

The firm would assess whether or not Unisa's internal investigation into Ncube's claims was conducted properly.

The statement added that the firm would advise on the necessary remedial action should it find that Unisa's probe was inadequately done.

Unisa hopes the external firm would help resolve the issue and bring Ncube closure during the "difficult emotional period".
