Spider or lady beetle ǀ In the last week the GCF team found a really amazing little spider. This incredible looking spider was identified as a Coccinella spider (Araneus coccinella). Looking at their red and black patters we could see where they get their name as they mimic lady beetles (coccinella insects). It might be rare to find these interesting spiders but its always fun to be on the lookout for these and other little beauties.

Fire & Rain ǀ Recently a controlled burn of 400ha was conducted on Gondwana Game Reserve. Fire is essential for Fynbos as it allows dormant seeds to germinate. In this time after fire we will see many short lived bulbs grow and flower in the nutrient rich soil. After the fire we have seen many fire lilies (Cyrtanthus angustifolius) flowering as the first bulbs to develop after the fire.
With the rain that the Southern Cape has experienced recently we expect to see more bulbs soon along with plenty of green grass for the animals to feed on. We look forward to sharing the interesting species we find in this area as the fynbos regenerates after the fire and rain.

The Naming and Renaming programme of Nelson Mandela University symbolically signals the University’s commitment to transformation in naming places, spaces
and buildings that enhance the Mandela name while entrenching the institution’s ever-growing intellectual identity.

This ongoing process is part of the renewal of the academy, talking to how heritage can be used to build social solidarity and promote social justice. It dates back to 20 July 2017, when Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University was officially renamed Nelson Mandela University: the only higher education institution in the world to carry the name of South Africa’s first democratically elected President, and one of the greatest statesmen of the 20th century, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

This year, on 20 July 2022, our institution marked five years of bearing this name, providing fresh impetus to reflect on our institutional values which include ubuntu, social justice and equality, and environmental stewardship.

The Occupational Health Services team has done Nelson Mandela University proud receiving a 92 percent score for a professional occupational health-related audit of their operations, systems and service undertaken during the current academic year.

In striving to meet the institutional value of excellence, Occupational Health Services volunteered to be audited by their professional body, the South African Society of Occupational Health Nursing Practitioners (SASOHN) in June 2022.

From being a business studies drop-out to sharing the stage with a Business School professor, hospitality entrepreneur Tenjiwe Francine Zana’s career has seen her swop broom for boardroom.

And, although Zana has worked hard to build her career, a large dollop of va-va-voom has been her secret weapon.

“How did I do it? It’s about passion and believing in yourself,” said Zana. “The message I want to give to any business person is know the space you work in and invest in your vision.”

The founder of Exclusive Hospitality Concepts was addressing the Nelson Mandela University Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences, in association with Mantis, at its Breakfast Club breakfast on Thursday, November 10.

Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences Professor Paul Poisat co-hosted the conversation with historian Dr Dean Allen in the Business School auditorium.

And there were tears at the emotional session in Summerstrand, as former colleagues in the hospitality industry showed up to support Zana as she told her rags-to-riches story. Today she runs a thriving company training people in the hospitality industry, with a full-time staff of 19 and dozens more part time employees.

She recalled her first job as a domestic worker aged 19 in Bluewater Bay. She had dropped out after two years of business studies as her family could not afford the fees.

“It was a very tough situation but I had to stick it out because we needed the money. Come month end, I was able to buy groceries to assist my siblings as well.”

However, when the chance then came to work at a hotel near the beachfront, she found her passion.

“I've quickly learned that the hospitality industry is where you get to meet different people. I was so inquisitive, I wanted to learn.”

And learn she did, first as a waitron then as a receptionist, working her way up from one-star to four-star hotels and lodges – and with a dream to work at a five-star establishment.

Congratulations to our own Dr Nehemiah Latolla who has just won the international FameLab competition – competing against five other finalists from around the world.

FameLab is the world's greatest science communication competition where six researchers and young professionals from around the world were selected to battle it out for the title of world's best science communicator in the FameLab International 2022 Online Final. The finalists had just three minutes to enlighten and entertain judges and the audience.

Nehemiah is a postdoctoral fellow in the Chemistry Department and his research stretches far beyond white coats and bubbling Erlenmeyer flasks into the fields, gardens and communities of the beautiful Eastern Cape. Nehemiah uses indigenous knowledge in his search for safe and effective diabetes medication. His research hopes to close the gap between plant users and scientists and move towards new solutions, collaboratively.

Open Education can achieve equity

“Imagine a world in which human knowledge is shared more equitably, unhindered by barriers of cost, time or national borders.

“Just think what could be achieved by marshalling the latest ground-breaking research and offering research-led, challenge-focused education at scale, as part of a global effort to meet – and solve – the biggest challenges facing our planet.

“This change is desperately needed and long overdue. Now is the time for action, not just words.”

These are the words of the Knowledge Equity Network, a principle that echoes the ideals of Gino Fransman, the Nelson Mandela University’s Open Education Influencers project leader.

“All too often, signatures from those committing to declarations remain on the page with no actionable follow-through. We want to change that. Open education must be a focal point at universities as it is such a huge area and cannot be maintained on the fringes of other dedicated portfolios. It requires the energy of a full-time entity,” Fransman says.

Access to resources underpins the practical aspect of open education. With the high cost of textbooks that hinders progress and motivation around learning, access is a fundamental priority.

Boost for differently abled students at Mandela University

Mandela University’s disability services has received a boost to its support service for differently abled students with purchase of new specialised vehicle.

The University’s Universal Accessibility and Disability Services (UADS) has purchased a brand-new Toyota Quantum bus, a first for the Unit as its previous vehicle was donated. This new, state-of-the-art vehicle will be used by our on-campus students who find it difficult or struggle to use the student shuttle, enabling them to be transported to medical appointments, go grocery shopping, attend lectures or practicals and participate in on-campus activities.

The vehicle has been adapted with a wheelchair hoist, allowing a wheelchair user to make use of the vehicle. It can take up to six occupants with one wheelchair user.

This vehicle will have a positive impact in the academic and student life of our differently abled students.

Furthermore, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Mzukisi Malgas as the Unit’s new Transport Facilitator.

Mandela University Geology masters’ students Sisipho Dlakiya and Vela Shuman and honour’s student Francois Swanepoel won the University’s inaugural student entrepreneurship competition with their monitoring and warning tool in case of geological disasters.

The Postgraduate Pitching Competition formed part of the recent University’s Inaugural Research Week. The team of students had to pitch a business idea for funding to build a device that will work in the field, in this case an optical fibre device for monitoring and warning in the mining and civil engineering sector.

“It was a tough competition, but with the help of my co-supervisor Dr James Jena of Physics, our team was the winner. We also want to sincerely thank Professor Tim Gibbon and our colleagues in the Centre of Broadband Telecommunications and my supervisor, Geology’s Dr Gaathier Mahed, for their continuous support and guidance throughout this journey”, said Sisipho.

The team has learnt a lot from this competition, starting from the workshop conducted by FarSight Coaching, which equipped them with the necessary skills to be able to present a business idea. They want to encourage other students to take opportunities like these as they open doors to success.
