South Africa’s former Public Protector, Thulisile Nomkhosi “Thuli” Madonsela, a South African advocate and Professor of Law, will be the guest speaker to address Law graduates at the University of the Free State’s (UFS) autumn grad­uation.

Internationally recognised, Mandosela will join the list of influential South Africans invited by the university for the weeklong presentation of graduation events.

The experts include Godwin Khosa, chief executive officer of the National Education Collaboration Trust (NECT), Thembekile Mrototo, broadcaster on 947 and eNCA, and Vian Chinner, chief executive officer of Xineoh and winner of the Chancellor’s Distinguished Alumni Award.

Events officially started on Monday (08/04), with the graduation of 521 students that had enrolled for the open distance learning programme.

Madonsela is pencilled in to bring the curtain down on the week’s events on Friday (12/04). She will be addressing 676 Law graduates, 71 graduates in Theology and Religion and 244 graduates in Health Sciences.

She currently serves as Law Trust Chairperson in Social Justice at the Stellenbosch University (SU).

Last year, she was also the key-note speaker at the UFS’ women’s breakfast, which commemorated Women’s Month.

Madonsela addressed approximately 900 women under the theme: “Embrace your Womanhood”.

Regarding the choice of invited experts, the university’s management has given their ability to impart knowledge and wisdom upon the graduates as the chief reason.

Management believes that these experts continue to play a significant role in the transformation of South African society.

The Kovsie graduates have described the annual UFS graduation season as a time that diffuses feelings of anticipation, exhilaration and optimism on campus, through which graduates can be assured of a purposeful and enriching send-off experience.

For the 2019 autumn graduation the university has a total of 5 325 graduates. The faculties include: Faculties of Education (1 036), Humanities (726), Economic and Management Sciences (934), Natural and Agricultural Sciences (1 188), Law (676), Health Sciences (244) and Theology and Religion (71).
