Professor Simangaliso Kumalo, a lecturer in the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics (SRPC), has been appointed a Fellow of Wesley House which is an affiliated college of Cambridge University in England.

Kumalo will spend six weeks at the university teaching and conducting research.

‘This is a great honour. It means that my work as an academic is being recognised and appreciated in other parts of the world,’ said Kumalo. ‘I am encouraged to work even harder. I also feel it is a challenge. To whom more is given, more will be expected.’

While at Cambridge, he will contribute in postgraduate seminars and present a seminar titled: The Minister as the Local Theologian.

Kumalo will also be writing a draft of his book titled Convergencies of Religion, Culture and Politics at Nelson Mandela’s Funeral.

Kumalo plans to foster a partnership between Cambridge University and UKZN.
