The Alumni Association Executive Committee appeal to all ALUMNI and FRIENDS of the University to support the institutional Convergence Fund established in aid of the poorest and most vulnerable in our communities, townships and informal settlements to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. We also acknowledge our alumni who are making a difference during this period in their various sectors and communities.

Your support for the Convergence Fund will be highly appreciated.

Khwezi Blosè, President
