Today, UKZNdaba launches UKZN VOICES, a monthly column that replaces The Griot. Although The Griot was highly popular, a decision was taken for the creation of a new column that will include diverse voices from within UKZN; this year’s focus being transformation - one of the key strategic focus areas for the University in 2019 and beyond. We look forward to insightful opinion pieces from all our writers who are well versed in the areas they will delve into.
