Stellenbosch University lecturer, Mr Phila Msimang, graduated cum laude with his master of arts (philosophy) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. ‘It feels great to have achieved this milestone. It makes me want to write another thesis,’ he said.
Msimang, who is passionate about research, often explores topics that stimulate his interest and have some social applications. This led to his research on the topic of race. He believes it has relevance to the concerns of stakeholders in both academia and the community at large.
