A chance meeting with Prince Zuzifa Buthelezi, son of the late MUT Founder, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, still triggers joy among the MUT staff. Prince Zuzifa Buthelezi was just as excited as the MUT staff were. When the team from MUT saw Prince Zuzifa outside the meeting rooms at the conference they were attending, he was in an important call, and he immediately dropped the call to meet the rest of the team. Thanking him for agreeing to meet the rest of the team, Prince Zuzifa Buthelezi said, “I listened to my father well when he said that MUT is important to our family. He warned me many times that I must always leave everything I am doing to attend to MUT”. While the university has had an everlasting relationship with the Founder, it is heartening to see that the relationship continues.
