Kingswood College recently week hosted the inaugural Uyinene Mrwetyana Commemorative Lecture in partnership with the Uyinene Mrwetyana Foundation. The annual event, held for the first time on Monday, 29 March 2021, is intended to celebrate the life and legacy of Uyinene around the time of her birthday each year – “a keen academic, a born leader, a talented musician, a smile that lit up a whole room – this was Uyinene Mrwetyana” the school said in a statement.
Keynote speaker for the inaugural lecture was Dr Alude Mahali, a Chief Research Specialist in the Inclusive Economic Development (IED) Programme at the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and who also serves on the advisory committee of the Foundation.
