This video of Mcebo Dlamini graduating will make your day

When you’re one of the most well-known student leaders in the country, what other way is there to graduate than by having people ululate before your name is even called and serenade you with their best version of iYoh Solomon? AAISHA DADI PATEL reports.

After a rocky year, during which he was removed as SRC president, made some controversial remarks proclaiming his admiration for Adolf Hitler, and was one of the leaders of the historic #FeesMustFall protests, Mcebo Dlamini graduated on Tuesday with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Breaking all conventions of normal stage time, Dlamini shook the hands of the academics on stage to the jubilation of the crowd. In a bittersweet moment, his nemesis vice-chancellor Adam Habib gave him a hearty embrace, and before he stepped off stage, so did current SRC president Nompendulo Mkatshwa.

On graduation day, it seems, all is forgiven.

Congratulations, Comrade Mcebo!

    Yes, let’s celebrate human rights abuses, genocide and stupidity. What an embarrassment that I hold the same degree.

    Merci Jean d’avoir rendu ce bel hommage à notre ami Pascal.Il va beaucoup me manquer… combien de fois ais je eu besoin de confronter avec lui différents sujets de société sur lesquels son avis était toujours d’une grande richesse. C’est plus qu’un ami, que je viens de perdre. Je t’embrasse Pascalou.Gilles

    Adam Habib embraced him because he thought—at the time— that he would not have to see him again!

    Why is the Daily Vox celebrating someone who is blatantly anti semitic. Would they do the same if it was someone who shared blatantly Islamphobic and anti Islamic statements considering the uthor of this article is Muslim? Or are they completely selective and anti semitic themselves… Lost all respect for them.

  9. I agree wholeheartedly, Clay. Dedication to any passion requires sacrifices, and each of us has the freedom to decide what those sacrifices should be. Now, I want to know what you sacrificed to get your book written—and land an agent!

    Re: Led Zep post -Jimmy Page bought Aleister Crowley's house, Boleskine. I wonder if Clockwork Orange didn't attempt to destroy the Skinhead movement which began as Black Na d White Working Class together. Afte CO the movement schismed into Football hooliganism and ox-blood doc Martens.Two-Tone later tried to 'put the movement back together'Black Sabbath also emerged around that time, and Hawkwind.cheers
