Staff and students at UCT are reminded that the university has a hotline that can be used to report fraud, corruption, unethical behaviour and misconduct confidentially and anonymously.

The 24-hour KPMG hotline is 0800 650 000 (toll free from a Telkom landline). Anyone with concerns can make a report and will get a reference number.  KPMG will then send the report to the university to investigate and, where required, take the appropriate action. Calls can be made in any of the 11 official languages as well as Dutch, French, German and Portuguese.

UCT also publishes the outcome of investigations arising out of the hotline. For more information about how the hotline operates, read the FAQs
