You have the power to fight corruption. Don’t be scared of corrupt individuals, they will not remove you. You are a President now. Don’t worry whether you’ll come back or not. Take a decision now. You have the power to take a decision. Stop dreaming about taking decisions when you have the power to take decisions. When you appointed hon Pravin against the Public Protector’s report, you took your powers away because you said his review suspends the remedial action.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
