The Black Business Council (BBC) lauds the election of Dr Precious Moloi–Motsepe as the new Chancellor of the University of Cape Town (UCT). She assumes her role as Chancellor on 01 January 2020.
Dr Moloi–Motsepe began her career in medicine as a general practitioner and subsequently combined her business astuteness and philanthropy to make significant inroads in various humanitarian responsibilities.
The BBC celebrates the election of Dr Moloi–Motsepe and congratulates her on her upcoming role as this will herald an era of renewed confidence and optimism within UCT.
“Dr Moloi–Motsepe has inspired countless South Africans with her humanitarian ventures. Her roles heading various organisations and institutions in areas of business and charity work will undoubtedly benefit both the UCT as well as the tertiary education sector in general” says BBC President Sandile Zungu.
UCT is one of the oldest higher educational institutions in the country, and the highest-ranked African university, making the election of Dr Moloi–Motsepe a significant accomplishment.
“The BBC further commends and salutes outgoing Chancellor, Graça Machel-Mandela on the sterling job she has done at the helm of UCT” concludes the BBC President.
