"Your attention is drawn to Section 12(g) [of the contract], which among others states that 'the government may at any time terminate sponsorship if (g) the student is involved in any matters of misconduct which includes, but is not limited to unacceptable behaviour as determined by the government. Due to misconduct your sponsorship is terminated with immediate effect," the letter reads.
