#HUMANRIGHTSDAY 2022

Human Rights Day is one that affords us, as South Africans and Nelson Mandela University, an opportunity to reflect.

This day, which is celebrated on 21 March yearly, is a commemoration of a painful day in South African history and a stark reminder to its citizens about the sacrifices made for the attainment of democracy in the country.

The Nelson Mandela Faculty of Humanities awarded its annual honour for teaching and learning excellence to Mr Jude Mathurine during an online ceremony in November 2021. Mr Mathurine, who has almost two decades of experience in higher education joined the Department of Media, Culture and Communications in 2019. He teaches several modules across the journalism diploma and BA MCC qualifications.

“I view my goal as empowering students as smart creatives for social good,” he says. Mr Mathurine uses problem-solving (mainly in and through student assessment) to help the students achieve an understanding of normative objectives such as equality, freedom, democracy, anti-racism in and through their own media production.

University update: Student protests – 04 March 2022

Staff and students are advised to work and study remotely as far as possible today (04 March 2022), in consultation with their line managers and lecturers.

This follows yesterday’s protest action on North and South campuses and the uncertainty of what may transpire on campus.

The University will continue engaging with the protesting students who, while having the right to protest, should not infringe on the rights of those wanting to access the campus and learning and teaching platforms.

All graduates can be certain of only one thing; the world will make demands on them in the not so distant future that nobody has even thought of today.

In this era of global, ethical, social, environmental, and identity crises, the complexity and magnitude of which threaten or promise to change the world as we know it, on-going learning and adaptation must become a way of life.

Against this backdrop, a good grounding in philosophy, which does not teach students what to think, but focuses on developing an open, flexible, critical mind, is an invaluable asset.

Solo Exhibition by local ceramic artist, Sonwabiso Ngqai, entitled Nkomoni na? will be on show from 11 March – 18 April 2022.


“Iyozala nkomoni na?” is an IsiXhosa phrase which loosely translates as “how will it turn out?”. A ceramic artist sits permanently on the edge of unpredictability. It is this uncertainty that propels material exploration and reflection. Clay will always be a platform for enquiry and discovery, for anticipation and mistakes.

The phrase “Iyozala nkomoni na?” is never far from a ceramicist’s thoughts. A deep familiarity is revisited in this body of work. Born and raised in rural Ngqeleni near Mthatha, the surrounding landscape was Sonwabiso’s playground and inspires his creative process.

02/03/2022

Online late registration is open until Friday, 4 March 2022. You can register from anywhere by logging on to the Student Portal or the Nelson Mandela University website:
