Varsity honours Struggle hero
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. |
