SOUTH Africa’s University of Johannesburg (UJ) has honoured Zambian law professor Muna Ndulo for his scholarly works. Prof Ndulo was on November 15 awarded in absentia with the 2018 Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Award for Global Excellence and Stature. The annual award celebrates and honours an international scholar for their outstanding contributions to promotion of international scholarship and global collaboration in advancing the University of Johannesburg’s goal towards Global Excellence and Stature.
“The award is in recognition of your exemplary championship of global excellence as evidence by your scholarly contributions and leadership in various political and legal associations and mission, globally,” read the UJ statement.
Prof Ndulo’s award was received on his behalf by the University’s Dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof Letlhokwa Mpedi.
And later in an interview, Prof Ndulo said: “I am humbled by the recognition and thank the University of Johannesburg for the honour. I dedicate it to all those men and women who dedicate their lives to the struggle for an Africa that respects human rights and human dignity. To be treated as a human being, is the undying quest of the human spirit as Augustine of Hippo said; ‘Justice is the end of society. What are societies without justice but robber bands on a large scale?”
