Watch! Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng Does The Most For A Graduating Student. Graduation ceremonies are going on around the country. The only difference is that, this year, they are held virtually because of Covid-19.
The graduations don’t have to be a bore though, not when you have Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng in your corner. The UCT’s Vice-Chancellor has been dubbed the institution’s ‘Fab Academic’ and her bubbly and dynamic, yet hard-working approach to higher education in an unapologetically African way has made her a game-changer in the field.
She took it upon herself to surprise one student who is graduating with a BCom. Professor Phakeng, made sure the student, had a memorable day, by going to his place, and be a part of his graduation. How fashionable can education get!
A Beautiful Surprise
“With graduation ceremonies going virtual I decided to surprise one of the BCom graduating students this week. Who knows, I may be driving past your area sometime soon. Watch this space & keep your mask & sanitiser ready, just in case,” Phakeng captioned the video.
