Final year law student and President of UNICEF-UKZN PMB Ms Juhi Hansraj, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian McArthur, School of Law lecturer Adv Victoria Balogun and third-year law student CLMS SRC Representative Mr Bathandwa Mki.

Honouring Helen Joseph, Lilian Ngoyi, Rahima Moosa, Albertina Sisulu and Sophia Wiliams-De Bruyn, UKZN’s College of Law and Management Studies got their green fingers busy!

On the balmy last day of August, the CLMS quartet, including Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian McArthur, third-year Law student CLMS SRC Representative Mr Bathandwa Mki, School of Law lecturer Adv Victoria Balogun and final year Law student and President of UNICEF-UKZN PMB Ms Juhi Hansraj honoured the 65th anniversary of the women’s march by planting a feature garden and installing a commemorative plaque.

This initiative, the brainchild of Mr Mki salutes, recognises and celebrates these icons, who on 9 August 1956, led 20 000 women in solidarity, sending a bold message to the world that women’s rights are human rights.

Once where two aloes stood alone together, they are now joined by a host of indigenous flora, including Agapanthus, Dianthus, Sunpatiens and Chlorophytum Comosum.

The College of Law and Management Studies invites staff and students to visit the garden spot and enjoy a moment there.
