Cape Town Alumnus Events

The Alumni Relations Office coordinated two very successful get-togethers for alumni in Cape Town on Friday, 13 March and Saturday, 14 March 2020.

The first event took the form of an Afternoon Tea at The Cape Grace Hotel at the Waterfront and was hosted by the Alumni Relations team. Mr Fanle Sibisi (President and Chair of Convocation) and Ms Normah Zondo (Acting Executive Director of Corporate Relations) attended and warmly welcomed everyone. Guests were provided with an overview of the current events at their alma mater, the opportunity to network with each other and to enjoy a wonderful selection of teas and eats.

The second event took the form of an excellent three-course dinner and a most entertaining and informative talk by fellow UKZN alumnus – Ms Les Aupiais - at the same venue on the Saturday. The well attended event provided an enjoyable opportunity for alumni, donors and friends of UKZN to renew old acquaintances, meet fellow-alumni and be updated on developments at their alma mater. Guest SpeakerLes Aupiais’s address titled: “Don’t put your daughter on the stage, Mrs Worthington…..the profession is overcrowded and the struggle’s pretty tough and admitting the fact, she’s burning to act, that isn’t quite enough…It wasn’t!” included a most witty series of anecdotes on her career and life experiences and conveyed a positive and encouraging message to the attendees.

Mr Fanle Sibisi (President and Chair of Convocation) highlighted the recent developments that have taken place at the University and encouraged attendees to support the University in whatever way they could. Ms Normah Zondo (Acting Executive Director of Corporate Relations) did the welcome, introductions of the speakers and assisted in answering the many questions posed by the attendees.

All attendees went home with information packs containing a selection of University publications and a corporate gift.
