As a response to the invitation by MarComms to alumni during the roadshow to visit their alma mater, Thandeka Molakeng made a pact with herself that she would honour the request. On 30 November 2017 the 1999 Analytical Chemistry graduate paid a surprise visit to the Alumni Relations Office at MarComms. Although in a hurry, Thandeka ended up spending a long time at MarComms. Thandeka also signed a pledge to contribute to the Alumni Bursary Fund. Thandeka is Head of Sales for BASF’s Performance Material Division in Africa. She is responsible for the division’s sales for African countries, with the exclusion of Egypt and Sudan.
