Every year the Mail & Guardian publishes a list of 200 exceptional and notable young people under the age of 35 in its “200 Young South Africans” list. This year, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) is proud to have 17 of its graduates featured on this list. The names were announced at a gala event on Thursday, 27 May 2019, in Sandton. To be featured on the list is a great feat, as many of those who appeared previously have gone on to achieve great things and become influencers in various fields, on the national and global stage. UJ Vice-Chancellor and Principal Prof Tshilidzi Marwala is one of those, having featured in the 2005 inaugural awards. There is also his former doctoral student, Msizi Khoza, Director of Corporate and Investment Banking at Absa and also now on the Executive Committee of the UJ Convocation, and Fulufhelo Nelwamondo, Executive Director of Modelling and Digital Science at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. This year, the list was published in partnership with Nedbank and eNCA.
