Death of Mak Ndzwayiba

The University regrets to announce that Makabongwe Ndzwayiba (fondly known as ‘Mak’) (09n5627) passed away on Thursday 29th March  after a long and brave battle against cancer. Mac spent  three very successful and happy years at Rhodes, in Allan Webb Hall, and was due to graduate with a BEcon degree in April. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

Further details about a memorial service will be announced in due course.
