Meet our oldest PhD graduate for the virtual Summer Graduation, Ms Fecility Nombeko Dwesini.
 
At age 66, the mother of 2 and grandmother of 5 graduated with a Doctorate in Public Administration during the online ceremony hosted earlier today.
 
Her thesis titled: Critical Analysis of the Divisional Governance Model and Management Model at Walter Sisulu University, sought to analyse the effects of the merger of the different institutions formerly known as Unitra (University of Transkei) , Border Technikon and Eastern Cape Technikon.
 
Ms Dwesini who was clad in her academic attire, watched her virtual graduation with her eldest daughter and grandchildren from the comfort of their home.
 
"I still can't believe it! I am grateful to God and I am lifting up His name. I appreciate my family and friends for their support. My sincere gratitude goes to my friends, Dr Anthony Kambi Masha and Professor Noluthando Matsiliza for their continuous support. They are part of my success," she said.
