The college is not registered by DHET?- See more on the college that awarded Mamkhize a PHD

Mamkhize was asked that she be stated as Dr Mkhize and changed her Instagram name to Dr Shauwn Mkhize.

Social media went on fire last week when it was shown that CEO of Royal AM and reality TV star Shauwn Mkhize, famously known as Mamkhize, was officiated as a doctor after being honoured with an honorary degree in philosophy for her ‘good deeds’.

Media companies have looked the story in details, but it turns out the college that acquired her the honorary degree was not registered.

The Royal AM boss honorary doctorate was conferred by a Christian institution, the Good Shepherd College of Religion, Culture and Training which is said not to be registered under DHET.

As she had just celebrated her PHD, people like her enemies went online to check whether the college that she went to was registered or not.

Only to find out that the college is nowhere to be found in Department Of Higher education books of South Africa.

According to DHET spokesperson," Kindly note that the Good Shepherd College of Religion and Training is not registered with the Department as a private higher education institution. We are currently investigating," said the Department of Higher Education and Training spokesperson Ishmael Mnisi.

He did not offer more information about the investigation and if whether there would be any action taken against the institution.

"She needs no stupid PHD. A lot with PHD's will die not being able to achieve what she has achieved. Besides PHD these days are just a measuring tool by true owners of this world, just so they can determine who is smarter than them." says a twitter follower

"You'll ask yourself how is this PhD going to benefit her. Imagine a well known person like Mamkhize receiving a fly-by-night doctrate."
