Retired Mthatha attorney Mda Mda, who enrolled for a law degree at UCT in 1944, is this year’s recipient of the President of Convocation Medal, awarded annually to an alumnus who has contributed to the common good.
From January 2016, UCT Libraries has decided to go cashless, and the reasons are three-fold:
to reduce the costs of handling cash across all the libraries (money will be saved on cash collection fees, bank charges and staff resources); to reduce the infrastructure requirements for cash handling and storage and; to reduce the potential physical risk to staff and students.
The move to a cashless environment will make our financial operations more efficient and cost effective.
Professor Rashida Manjoo, former UN Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women, will moderate presentations by Dr Aninka Claasens from UCT’s Centre for Law and Society, Thabisa Ngada from the Gender Commission, Sanja Bornman from the Women’s Legal Centre, and Ms Griessel from the Office of the Public Protector.
