"The University of Johannesburg (UJ) has officially severed ties with Israel’s Ben-Gurion University (BGU), deputy vice chancellor Adam Habib said on Wednesday.
“It will happen as per protocol on April 1,” Habib told Sapa.
“We had a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with them and that will now be severed.”
Habib said the “financial implications” of the decision would not adversely impact the UJ.
“Decisions should not be determined by finances, but to be honest it will not adversely impact the university. We are a big institution with a big budget. Our finances will not be adversely impacted one way or other.”
