MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube was the picture of a proud mother as she posed for a photo with her daughter on her graduation day.
On Tuesday, Hazel Ncube, the daughter of KZN MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube, graduated from the University of KwaZulu-Natal with her Honours degree.
The university took to its Facebook page to share a photo of the mother-daughter duo on the special day and Dube-Ncube was the epitome of a proud mama.
"A proud mother and daughter moment. The Minister for Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs in the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature, Mrs Nomusa Dube-Ncube, had a proud moment with her daughter, Ms Hazel Ncube, who graduated with her Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree," the university captioned the snap on Facebook.
Briefly.co.za gathered Ms Ncube focused her research on the book-turned-movie, The Colour Purple.
The story features an African-American woman who suffered abuse and bigotry while living in the South of the US.
"I looked at feminism in The Colour Purple as I believe it is both an important and relevant piece of literature that undresses this issue but also encapsulates where the rights of women stem from and why it is deemed important," the graduate said.
