The BSc 3 chemistry group had a problem with Dr Debeila's method of teaching. He focused on theory, without giving clear cut explanations of the ideas contained within the notes. In addition the class was given tutorials to use to practice for the tutorial test without guidance as to how they would answer the questions;when the class asked for guidance in answering questions he refused and said we must refer to the textbook; without taking into consideration that the textbook has very terse examples and that they are even more confusing than his notes. He said that if any student is in need of help they must come to his office without considering the fact that some students are at home. The students explained that it's not only one student that is confused but the class as whole, meaning the only logical thing to do is to address the class in one whole sitting; he still did not want to co-operate. As a result we then had to take the matter to the HOD, whom then suggested we reach him through email, we still could not get a proper response from of him. On the 15th of April Victor Mathlamane sent an email to Dr Maseko whom then said she would call Victor to properly discuss the matter. On the call she suggested that we sort out the matter with Dr Debeila. A meeting was arranged on the 19th of April for the 20th of April - because of other commitments, he could not attend and then asked the class representatives to postpone the meeting for another day. A tut was supposed to be written and as a result of the aforementioned issues, it was boycotted. On the 22nd of April he replied to an email, that is the same day when the BSc 3 chemistry class had requested his removal. On the 26th of April a number of students forwarded their details in an attempt to put a petition in motion for his deposition. The matter was taken to the HOD after procedures were thoroughly followed. A meeting was held on the 3rd of May with the HOD, Dr Debeila and the class representatives to resolve the matter (the same day the first major test was supposed to be written). A strategy was developed to try and make amends for the lack of understanding that the students had of Dr Debeila's section; however, the students refused it completely because they did not want to work with the Doctor anymore.
