Hon Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that during the ninth annual South African Literary Awards ceremony in Pretoria on Saturday, 8 November 2014 a posthumous award was conferred upon Dr Mbulelo Mzamane for his contribution to education, arts and culture;
2) recalls that Dr Mzamane was a man of great compassion who served humanity with humility and without trumpeting the greatness of his generosity;
3) further recalls that he was the Director of the Centre for African Literary Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Fort Hare, and that he served on numerous boards, including the African Arts Fund and the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism; 4) acknowledges that Dr Mzamane's fellow iconic writers, Zakes Mda and Njabulo Ndebele, were awarded the Chairman's Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award respectively; and
5) congratulates all the recipients of these awards and commends the organisers of the event for keeping Mzamane's legacy alive.
