It was music to the ears of EMC and most importantly, Dr Manyane Makua, the man tasked with leading the entire academic programme, when Phumzile Masala, Acting Registrar, confirmed that the last day of the final 2021 exams is 22 January 2022. Masala was speaking at the EMC meeting held on 12 January 2022.
Dr Makua, who is standing in as Acting Vice-Chancellor and Principal, is probably playing the song, “It wasn’t easy but it was worth it”. Salute to everyone who enabled the academic agenda to be at the stage it is at. The University, through its Acting Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Marcus Ramogale’s constant messages about “saving the academic year” and “saving lives” has been clear.
The 2021 academic year was not easy; the great work of all involved is commendable.
