In its bid to attain high performance, University of Botswana (UB) is allegedly targeting close to 600 employees to voluntarily exit from the institution as part of its restructuring exercise.

During an interview with the president of the UB Staff Union (UBSU), Gadzani Mhotsha he stated that for over a year now, the university has been on a mission to be a high performing organisation therefore chances of people exiting their jobs are high.

“There is an ongoing process by the university to try and turn it into high performance institution and this necessitated that a restructuring exercise of some sort should take place,” Mhotsha said. Giving an update on the restructuring process that the UB is undergoing, Mhotsha said the university has even made progress in the restructuring exercise.
