JOHN DLUDLU: New University of Johannesburg vice-chancellor a beacon of hope
‘How UJ deals with the fees crisis will be one of the key tests of Tshilidzi Marwala’s leadership’
This column tries to pontificate about matters of the political economy and attempts to point out gaps and, humbly, suggest workable solutions. But every now and then, it will deviate from this mandate to celebrate South Africans who are doing well.
So, bear with your columnist as he dedicates this space to acknowledging the well-deserved elevation of Tshilidzi Marwala to the post of vice-chancellor of the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Marwala, whose 30-page curriculum vitae reads like an obituary of a 90-year old, takes over in January from Ihron Rensburg.
