The University of KwaZulu-Natal is proud to continuously inspire greatness amongst all its students, employees and alumni.

Ms Zanele Njapha graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree in 2015. Before that (2013), she had the opportunity to study at the Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada, as a UKZN exchange student. She then went on to pursue a Master’s degree in Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, USA.

During her years as a student at UKZN, she became very much involved in various programmes and organisations. She became part of the Executive Teams President of the UKZN Enactus at the Edgewood campus.

An Eye For Love, written by Njapha, is a book in which she shares her experiences. She dedicates the book to her grandmother, who was sad at heart for a lengthy period as well as anyone who may be looking for a lifeline. According to Njapha, the book also explores the passing away of loved ones, opportunities, habits, careers and relationships.

‘I wish to share the book so that people can live with an attitude of love and not merely go through the motions as the living dead’, she said.

Njapha plans to write more books, grow as an entrepreneur and continue to offer growth and strategies towards effective leadership and education.

The book is available at Exclusive Books, Bargain Books, Adams, CNA, Take-A-lot and online on
