Africa Day Celebration

It was a colourful and beautiful day of dance, poetry and song when UMP held the Africa Day celebrations. Opening the event Vice Chancellor Professor Thoko Mayekiso said: "At UMP we believe that Africa Day provides us with an excellent opportunity to advance our vision and to live our values of diversity. We foster an environment in which diversity is appreciated, respected and celebrated.” The University also hosted Professor Tinyiko Maluleke who spoke fondly about the challenges Africa faces in the world. “We constantly have to ask ourselves: who is African? What does it mean to be an African today.”
