Bra Sam is deserving of honour
Prof Themba Sono, I know you are passionately opposed to the awarding of an honorary doctorate.
Mhangwani is an affable person. During the tough days of apartheid his plays made us laugh and to forget about the suffering we endured under this pernicious system. We packed the township halls to listen to his entertaining plays. Together with Leonard Sithole and Solly Nkutha they organised music festivals.
In Britain people who performed meritorious services are knighted or given orders such as the Order of the British Empire and the Member of the British Empire. Think of Sir Elton John and Sir Bobby Charlton. A few weeks ago, our president, Cyril Ramaphosa bestowed our orders on those individuals who performed outstanding service to the community.
I wonder if Mhangwani has received any of these orders.

A person with an honorary degree who is a public figure, appearing regularly in the media is more recognised and respected than people with real doctorates. My sympathies are with Bra Sam.
