Minister Blade Nzimande addresses University of Zululand’s inaugural conference on African Thought, 17 Nov

The Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation, Dr Blade Nzimande, will address the University of Zululand’s Inaugural Conference on African Thought, which will be held under the theme “Advancing African thought”
The conference is being held in pursuance of the strategic plan of transforming the University of Zululand into an authentic African university where epistemologies of the Global South and indigenous African knowledges are privileged.
As UniZulu’s contribution to the broader struggle for the total emancipation of African people, the university is taking bold, deliberate and calculated steps to renegotiate and re-contract with the local, provincial, national, continental and planetary publics through a paradigm shift from the alienating colonial model.
The engagements and interventions of the conference are planned towards this end and will contribute to a clear roadmap for systematising, operationalising and modelling African thought at UNIZULU.
