The flagship 40th celebration has come and gone. But it would be worth a while to reflect on the events a bit. This great event was hailed a big success by the many guests who attended, including esteemed visitors like the Founder of the University, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi. The multi-themed event started off with ‘Town meets Gown’, on 14 June 2019, wherein MUT staff donned their academic regalia and took over Mangosuthu Highway, and turned back at the KwaMnyandu intersection, much to the amazement and joy of the local people. The ‘Town meets Gown’ was the first of its kind in Umlazi. It was followed by the unveiling of the Prince’s mosaic at the University’s Anniversary Lane. Next was the visit to the gallery at the Faculty of Natural Sciences. This was a jaw-dropping experience for the viewers. The open hallway in the faculty had been transformed into a magnificent art centre, showing the history of Umlazi Township, the University, and Prince Buthelezi.
