Graça Machel has served as chancellor at the University of Cape Town (UCT) for 2 decades, but 2 political powerhouses are touted to be her successor. Briefly.co.za readers choose between Helen Zille and Julius Malema.
Briefly.co.za ran an interesting online poll recently regarding the next chancellor at the University of Cape Town (UCT).
Graça Machel, wife of the late former president, Nelson Mandela, has held the position for two decades, but two political icons have been identified as her possible successor.
Briefly.co.za asked our readers to choose between the two favourites - Western Cape Premier, Helen Zille, and EFF leader, Julius Malema.
The Facebook poll drew a strong response with hundreds of readers making their virtual mark.
Peter Tracey asked, “Why not? Why not make the other deputy and take both? We are already a joke.”
Modupi Zacharia Sekhonyane said, “Helen Zille is the potential candidate and Julius Malema is just accompanying her.”
Sibusiso Mamba commented, “Don’t even vote and waste your time Limpopian and Capetonian in the same ring in Cape Town Wrestle Mania, Hellen wins the match.”
Mpume Thabede said, “UCT is clever. No strikes for UCT students. #VICE CHANCELLOR cannot promote strikes.”
Jean Helen Korte said, “Surely one should have a high education degree to be a Chancellor, this is what I can't understand with South Africa, they put people in positions that they are not qualified for, then wonder why nothing works.”
Eon Penny added: “I really hope this is a joke. On the other hand he might learn critical skills like responsible behaviour, leadership and ethics from those students.”
