House Warden - Meesbah Jiwaji

Mez Jiwaji has the privilege of being the House Warden of Victoria Mxenge House...again.

Mez wardened at Victoria Mxenge House between 2002 and 2007. After she completed her academic studies at Rhodes University in 2007, she and Drew (her partner) had some long long discussions. They both felt that some out-of-Grahamstown experience was necessary. Beatie, the Zimbabwean fox terrier, after much persuasion also agreed. So very reluctantly, they packed; Mez packed, Drew packed, Beatie packed. Admittedly, Beatie packed the least. They all headed off and spent some years exploring different pastures.

However, the call of Grahamstown was strong. Drew returned with Beatie mid-way through April in 2012. Later that year, and conveniently just in time for the holiday season and presents, Mez returned with the newest member of the family, Insiyah.

And in April 2013, they were delighted to be offered the opportunity to Warden again.

They have settled back into Victoria Mxenge House, and love to get involved. If you require any information about the residence or would like to visit, please contact them.
