A brilliant young man has made South Africans proud as he got a three-year qualification in just two years. The unbelievable part is that he received this degree at the tender age of 25. The youngster with his fresh "Dr" title got his LLD in Mercantile Law from the North-West University.
Magau says he feels honoured to have obtained this qualification within a minimum record time and also at such young age. In an interview with the UKZN NdabaOnline, the intellectual said:

“Completing a Ph.D. in two years calls for many sacrifices. The uncertainty brought about by the pandemic made me anxious and at one point, I was not sure that I could finish on time. Support from my family and supervisors saw me through. With a doctoral degree, I am better positioned to grow my career.”
Comments flocked on social media as people admired Magau’s wit and also congratulated him on his grand achievements. Thobile Dlamini (@thobval) commented on Twitter:
"Rise black child its just so beautiful to see the young going after their dreams once more keep rising DR Phemelo Magau."
As usual, other comments were a bit spiteful as some couldn't understand how it's possibe to obtain a doctorate in law at 25 when there are articles to complete after an LLB degree.
