Hon House Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes the outstanding initiative by the University of Cape Town, UCT to establish the Uyinene Mrwetyana Scholarship for women in Humanities studies;
2) salutes Dr Mamokgethi Phakeng's visionary leadership at UCT that has gone to great lengths to inspire confidence and hope in the entire African Diaspora;
3) recognises that the legacy of Uyinene Mrwetyana lives in the broader higher education fraternity, especially
her creation induced scholarship which will benefit many women on our shores;
4) appreciates the concerted efforts to empower young women and their kith and kin, by institutions such as UCT, the University of the Witwatersrand and many others; and
5) encourages young women to seize the moment and claim a stake of the Uyinene Mrwetyana Scholarship.
6) advises our young women to take advantage of this opportunity as William Shakespeare avers:
There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.
I so move.
