Dr Esther Mahlangu Presented with Honorary Doctorate from TUT

Mahlangu was awarded the degree of Doctor of Arts and Design (Honoris Causa) in the Faculty of Arts and Design in recognition of capturing the imagination of the world with her unique Ndebele art, and for her tireless efforts to ensure that this art form, with its rich history, is preserved for future generations.


At a luncheon to celebrate the honorary doctors, a modest Mahlangu thanked the University in Ndebele and said: “I’m happy today that I’m also wearing red attire, and I’m honoured. I’m truly grateful for what you have done for me. I have caught up with you who have walked this path before me.”
