New council chair elected

CPUT’s newly elected Council Chair brings a wealth of public sector experience to his new role and is intent on strengthening stakeholder relations within the institution.

Advocate Zuko Mapoma is no stranger to the university’s highest decision-making body, he previously served as the Deputy Chair until his unanimous election on Saturday, and he also served in the previous Council.

His mandate for his tenure as Council Chair is clear, a continued focus on good governance and strengthening stakeholder relations.

“For me, the systems must be in place to ensure good governance because without that you have nothing. Luckily, during my time on Council I can say that CPUT seems to be managing this area well so we must maintain that,” Mapoma says.

“Then I want to look at our internal and external relations with some of our stakeholders. We should all be singing from the same hymnbook to ultimately advance the good name of the institution and build our brand. Disharmony impacts directly on the reputation of the university and it is in all of our best interests for CPUT to be spoken about well.”

Mapoma says that while disagreements between management and Council may arise he instead wants to open up the space and give the university leadership the space to do its job.

“As long as Council has a good moral standing and is raising issues within the best interests of the university then we keep contestations to a minimum.”

Mapoma is an Advocate of the Cape High Court with over 13 years of executive board management and public sector experience.

Toni Beukes is ‘privileged’ to serve at the South African Renewable Energy Technology Centre (SARETEC) following her recent appointment as a new member of their Governance Board.
