Duped MaMkhize’s College that awarded her the PhD is not registered. Shauwn Mkhize is a businesswoman and a football club owner worth millions of rands and is not shy to show that off. She recently brought social media to a stand still after she shared pics of herself in a graduation gown after being honoured with an honorary degree in philosophy for her ‘good deeds’.
She went on to ask people to address her as Dr Mkhize and changed her Instagram name to Dr Shauwn Mkhize. It known turns out the Royal AM’s doctorate is not valid as the college that awarded her the honorary degree is not registered.
She received her honorary doctorate from a Christian institution, the Good Shepherd College of Religion, Culture and Training. It is weired because the institution does not even have a website or education domain and no authority to issue a PhD doctorate in philosophy.
“Kindly note that the Good Shepherd College of Religion and Training is not registered with the Department as a private higher education institution. We are currently investigating,” said the Department of Higher Education and Training spokesperson Ishmael Mnisi.
No further information was given as to whether any charges were going to be laid against the institution further investigation revealed that a Facebook page under the name of the institution last had a post in 2020.
It was al celebrations for Mamkhize’s family and friends as they threw her dinner in honour of her achievement and she shared her pics on social media. She even went on to pen a heartfelt message to her parents saying:
“Dear Mama and Papa. Here we are your daughters are both doctors. I hope you and dad are watching over this moment and you are beyond proud. Thank you Lord for this day and thank you to oKhabazela ka Mavovo kayihlandla. It’s moments like this that I cherish from the bottom of my heart, being celebrated and acknowledged whilst I’m still alive.”
