Cape Times - - NEWS - Rudzani Mat­shili

THE con­tri­bu­tions and sac­ri­fices of Strug­gle vet­eran Tlou Theophilus Cholo were recog­nised yes­ter­day with an hon­orary doc­tor­ate con­ferred on him by the Tsh­wane Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (TUT).

The 92-year-old re­ceived his award at the in­sti­tu­tion’s spring grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in the Gen­cor Com­mu­nity Hall on TUT’s Soshanguve South Cam­pus.

But the day be­longed to Cholo. The doc­tor­ate was con­ferred on him by TUT chan­cel­lor, Dr Gwen Ramok­gopa, also the MEC for Health in Gaut­eng.

Cholo, who was de­scribed as a self­less cadre, said he was over­whelmed to be hon­oured. |
