“Congratulation, mama. What kind of jobs do theologians do?”

She responded:

“Thank you sweety. I’m a lecturer at the University of Pretoria, in the departments of Religion studies, Old Testament and Hebrew Scriptures. I’m also an office bearer in the church as a licensed candidate minister of religion. We can teach and preach.”

She is passionate about biblical studies and her interests vary from feminist biblical interpretations, critical race theory, African biblical hermeneutics and philosophy.

Another feather in her cap was being chosen as a “visiting lecturer” at the Jerusalem School of Theology in February this year.

“I successfully taught an online structured module at the Jerusalem School of Theology for a programme of German speaking students who visit Jerusalem for a year. The theme of the lectures was Land in the Context of Palestine and South Africa,” she said.

Briefly News reported on the post. It read: "I began my journey in 2010, studying both BCom in chartered accountancy together with theology at the same time. Indeed, I am a product of God’s Grace, I have seen this God in my life.
“Finally, at the age of 31 years, I can confirm that my PhD in theology is done and dusted, and finally conferred. I passed with Summa Cum Laude, which is the highest honour. I can also say “Hello" to my first ever NQF Level 10. And cheers to more that is coming. Ladies and gentlemen, by God’s Grace, I present to you Dr Thapelo Donald Kgabage.”
@Geroge Bokrata said: "Congratulations to you and may God continue to bless you always.” @Ofentse Gaotlhaelwe said: "Now should we address you as Pastor or Dr? Congratulations by the way! That's the results of perseverance, determination, dedication, patience and hard work.” @Michael Tower said: “I'm from the United States. Congratulations Dr Kgabage in obtaining your PhD in Theology. The world is in great need of young spiritual leadership in the mode of Dr Martin Luther King. The sky is the limit!”
