Noxolo Grootboom granted an honorary doctorate from Nelson Mandela University

The Nelson Mandela University will present a privileged doctorate on veteran transmission columnist Noxolo Grootboom.

Noxolo resigned from the SABC last year following 37 years at the telecaster.

Noxolo read her last isiXhosa news announcement to 3.8-million watchers on March 30 2021. The college depicted as significant her commitment to news coverage, correspondences and phonetic legacy.

The college said that Grootboom addressed “numerous things that Nelson Mandela University represents”, saying she attempted to protect “the scholarly legacy of isiXhosa for families the country over”.
