Mogoeng Mogoeng has officially tended in his resignation letter as the chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN).

The South African Chief Justice was forced to resign follwoing his pro-Israel remarks that he made during a webinar hosted by the Jerusalem Post about a year ago.

His comments that came under serious criticism reads;

“I’m under an obligation as a Christian to love Israel, to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, which actually means the peace of Israel. And I cannot as a Christian do anything other than love and pray for Israel because I know hatred for Israel by me and for my nation will, can, only attract unprecedented curses upon our nation”.

His position will now be held by the current vice-chancellor, Professor Nana Poku.
