Prof Thabo Msibi, is South Africa’s youngest Dean and Head of School at the University of KwaZulu Natal. Kholeka Shange caught up with him and they spoke at length on various themes ranging from transformation in Higher Education, mentorship, issues of gender and sexuality, and African scholarship.
In the interview, Prof Msibi cautions against creating a narrative which implies that young academics are completely disempowered. Msibi says his achievements are proof that if given equal opportunities, young academics have much to offer in academia and can excel.
