MaMkhize goes under investigation again, thanks to her social media flaunting

Shauwn Mkhize, popularly known as MaMkhize, is well known for flaunting her riches and achievements on social media.

She recently raffled feathers when she flaunted her honorary doctorate on social media. 

Now Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation Dr Blade Nzimande has expressed his concerns about “bogus” institutions awarding honorary doctorates to unsuspecting individuals, especially celebrities.

Nzimande urged members of the public to always be wary and not accept such qualifications.

Last week, social media was abuzz when it was revealed that entrepreneur and reality TV star Shauwn Mkhize, known as MaMkhize, was officially a doctor after being awarded an honorary doctor of philosophy degree for her “good deeds” by the Good Shepherd College of Religion, Culture and Training.

Mkhize went as far as asking to be addressed as “Dr Mkhize” and subsequently changed her Instagram name to Dr Shauwn Mkhize.

However, it soon emerged the institution that honoured the Royal AM football club president did not even have a website or education domain and apparently no authority to issue a PhD in philosophy.

Nzimande’s spokesperson Ishmael Mnisi said there was an ongoing investigation. “Kindly note that the Good Shepherd College of Religion and Training is not registered with the department as a private higher education institution.”

According to the Times of Swaziland, the same college reportedly honoured Timothy Myeni of Ncandweni Christ Ambassadors with a doctorate for his contribution to the gospel industry.
