Professor Marcus Ramogale, acting Vice-Chancellor and Principal of MUT, took it upon himself to honour an invitation extended to him and a few members of his team by Professor Otty Nxumalo in his capacity as Chairman of the Royal Coronation Committee. The invitation was extended to the ceremony of the handing over of a certificate to the new AmaZulu King Misuzulu kaZwelithini, which took place on Saturday, 29 October 2022.
“This was a great ceremony and a once-in-a-lifetime ceremony. Not only was I glad to be part of the attendees, but I was also glad to witness the love of culture within the region afterwards, showing off how best its traditional garments are differentiated from the other regions. As a University, we have a framework for the preservation of local history and the curation of local art. I would like to take this forward and ensure that this is documented properly as part of our contribution as a University,” said Professor Ramogale. “We are representing MUT to say, Bayede, Ndabezitha” Prof Ramogale said.
