Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) has a new Chair of Council. Sanelisiwe Mnyandu, a graduate of the University, was elected on 14 July 2022. She replaced Morailane Morailane, who resigned from the position the previous week.
Mnyandu, who is also a member of the MUT Convocation executive said that she was honoured to be elected to perform this important role.
“I am fully aware of the weight upon my shoulders as the very first convocant and female to be elected as Chair of the University [Council],” said Mnyandu. “My passion and dedication towards MUT and higher education remain the necessary drive to sustain the required energy for an office of this magnitude.”
Mnyandu said she would use the University Statute as a guide when executing her duties.
The University’s Alumni Relations office has congratulated Mnyandu on her appointment.
