UCT Gives Kaiser Chiefs Football Club Founder Kaiser Motaung Honorary Doctorate Degree – SABC News

The University of Cape Town awarded Kaiser Motaung, the founder of the Kaiser Chiefs Football Club, an honorary doctorate. He received an honorary doctorate in social sciences.

Five other prominent figures also received honorary doctorate degrees at the graduation ceremony held at the university, and 100 others received doctoral degrees. Graduates came out in full force.

Motaung spoke about the meeting at one of the ceremonies.

“The message to our graduates is that not only South Africa, but the whole world awaits you. There are many challenges in today’s world. Frans Fanon, I quoted. To you, the world is an oyster. Go out there and make a difference in your community. Be part of the solution, not the problem of society.”

Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town, requested a doctorate from the university. Graduates challenge themselves to become leaders in their fields of study.

Phakeng says graduates should strive to become leaders with a social conscience.

“The skills and scientific skills you have gained through your studies here at UCT are important, but they will not succeed on their own. So I hope that studying here at UCT will also give you the knowledge, vision and courage to unleash your potential to create a just and fair society.”
