COVID-19
On 15 March 2020, a national state of disaster was declared in South Africa in light of
the COVID-19 outbreak (per government gazette 43096). In keeping with the
instructions of the President of the Republic of South Africa, the Honourable President
Cyril Ramaphosa, per the public address delivered on 23 March 2020, the Republic of
South Africa was placed under lockdown from Thursday, 26 March 2020. Government
gazette 43107 subsequently issued by the Department of Co-operative Governance
and Traditional Affairs placed a prohibition on gatherings. After due consideration of
further inputs from the University’s COVID-19 War Room team, a decision was taken
by University Leadership to cancel the 2020 Spring Graduation Ceremonies.

A virtual conferral of Degrees and Diplomas took place on 30 October 2020. The
University retained the original approved graduation programmes and dates for
record purposes.

DOCTOR DEGREES

Doctor of Philosophy
 Abiolu, Rhoda Titilopemi Inioluwa, BA(UIbadan), BSocScHons, MSocSc �� Cultural And Media Studies
 Thesis:        A Comparative Study of Christian Music Use and Identity Construction among
                Black South Africans and Diasporic Peoples of Nigeria and the Democratic
                Republic of the Congo (DRC) within Durban, South Africa
 Citation:      Christian music is an expression of cultural and religious identity. Rhoda
                Abilou’s thesis investigated the role of Christian music, both during worship
                and in private spaces, among South Africans and diasporic Nigerians and
                Congolese who reside in Durban. Her work indicated how Christian music
                is a powerful facilitator and means of engagement, to preserve and create
                identities, initiate and sustain viable communication, and forestall animosity
                between different communities of people.
 Supervisor:    Professor RE Teer-Tomaselli

 Akinmolayan, Emmanuel Seun, BA(OAU), BEdHons, MEd........................ Language And Media Studies
 Thesis:       An investigation into postgraduate students’ experiences of Academic
               writing: A case study of a University in Nigeria.
 Citation:     This study examined postgraduate students’ experiences of academic writing
               in a Nigerian university. Using a socio-cultural lens and a critical discourse
               analysis approach, the findings reveal that less attention was paid to writing
               pedagogy, although supervisors acknowledged students’ writing challenges.
               In line with recent developments, it is recommended that postgraduate
               pedagogy should move away from focusing on the thesis- to a pedagogy of
               training students to be competent writers.

Aladejebi, David Toyin, BEd(AdekunleAU), MEd(UIbadan)..................................Social Science Education
Thesis:        An Exploration of the Intended, Enacted and Achieved Environmental
               Education Curriculum within the Social Studies Teacher Education Programme
               at a Nigerian University.
Citation:      The study contends that Social Studies teachers could play a role in raising
               the level of awareness of the Nigerian population about pro-environmental
               behaviour, via the curriculum. The examiners noted the theoretical
               contribution, of including teacher planning for curriculum enactment, in
               the Remillard and Heck model for curriculum enactment. Teacher planning
               is key for curriculum enactment, as it sets the course for enactment of the
               curriculum in the classroom.

Alina, Marion Olga, BA(MakerereU), MA(MakerereU) �������������������������������������� Cultural And Media Studies
Thesis:        Television Engagement with Followers on Facebook: A Case Study of Nation
               Television During the 2016 Elections in Uganda
Citation:      This study is premised on the stifling of freedom of speech and expression
               in Uganda, now evident in constricting of social media platforms. It bases
               on the country’s 2016 presidential aspect of the elections as covered on the
               Facebook page of a local television, Nation Television, when social media was
               shut down; to argue that Facebook is Ugandans new public sphere allowing
               for diversity in views on the country’s political dispensation.

Buccus, Imraan, BPaed(PrimEd), MA.........................................Educational Mngmt Leadership And Policy
Thesis:        Narratives of Black Vice Chancellors on becoming and being leaders of public
               universities in South Africa: contributory factors and challenges experienced.
Citation:      Imraan Buccus explored the narratives of Black Vice Chancellors on how
               they account for and make sense of their journey into becoming and
               being leaders within South African public universities. The study, through
               an analysis of critical influences that shaped their career paths, found that
               their biographical beginnings, being recognised leaders in their disciplinary
               interests and transformational imperatives provided the platform for
               becoming Vice-chancellors to lead public universities.

Budram, Rajesh, HDE(SpringfieldCoE), BEd(PUCHO), MEd.................................... Mathematics Education
Thesis:       An Exploration of Pre-Service Teachers use of Visualization when teaching
              and solving problems in the mathematics classroom.
Citation:     This study examined the use of visualization in the teaching of problem-solving
              by preservice teachers. The results showed that some of the preservice teachers
              had a limited knowledge of the use of visual problem-solving strategies. The
              study also found that there was a correlation between the preservice teachers
              lack of content knowledge and their inability to find visual strategies.

Thesis:        A psychosocial support framework for sustainable learning at a public TVET college.
Citation:      With his thesis, the candidate explores a psychosocial support framework for
               sustainable learning at a public TVET college. This study was operationalised
               through participatory action research and drew from student development
               theory as a framework to argue for understanding and enactment of feasible
               psychosocial support services that meet the students’ psychosocial needs.
               This study contributes to the creation of a sustainable learning environment

Thesis:                        An asset-based approach to mitigating learner multiple vulnerabilities in
                               Zimbabwean rural learning ecologies.
Citation:                      With his thesis, the candidate makes a contribution in improving quality of
                               education in rural areas, for learners facing ‘multiple vulnerabilities’. He re-

Thesis:      Dynamics of Power and its implications on leadership succession, governance,

Citation:    The aim of the study was to investigate leadership succession method used
             in the Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe. Using qualitative approach, the
             study found out that the change from the traditional model of transferring
             power in the top leadership contributed to leadership difficulties and power
             struggles experienced in the church today. Therefore, there is need for AFMZ
             to revisit the traditional model of transferring power within the church.

Citation:       Leading and managing township schools ethically has increasingly
                become a complex undertaking recently. Thulani Dladla’s study explored
                the conceptualisation and enactment of ethical leadership by school
                management teams and teachers in challenging township school contexts.
                While the findings highlight the overwhelming impact of contextual factors,
                the study found that visionary, adaptable, reflective and resilient ethical
                school leaders influence the context rather than be constrained by it.

               The study found that climate change discourses were linked to energy-
               intensive economy discourses; and conversely, there was a cautious optimism
               in technological and renewable energy interventions.

             development in South Africa: A case study of one rural circuit in KwaZulu-

Citation:    Poor learning outcomes suggest that South African public schools require
             transformation. Informed by a trinity of social, adult and learning-centred
             leadership theories, Nhlumayo studied how teachers, school principals and their
             circuit manager understood and experienced school-based teacher professional
             development. Findings show a restricted understanding and impoverished
             experiences. There is lack of both capacity and local ownership. The study
             proposes the adoption of a school-based collective participation model.

Citation:   Using Msinga Farmers’ Everyday Agricultural Practices as a canvas, this study
            shows how, as climate change and variability persist, the focus on traditional
            and/or conventional agriculture only as a mainstreaming opportunity to
            achieve Sustainable Development Goals, is not only dated, but problematic. The
            multi-stakeholder partnerships reveal that through Climate Smart Agriculture
            (Technology) adoption by the farmers, the mitigation and adaptation to
            climate related risks and food security are simultaneously achieved.

Thesis:       Epistemology in African Philosophy: A Critique of African Concept of Knowledge.
Citation:     Ovett Nwosimiri’s dissertation focuses on Epistemology in African
              philosophy. Nwosimiri’s aim is to reconstruct and critique the understanding
              of epistemology in this tradition. This is done against a readily assumed
              understanding of a distinct and unique African epistemology. Nwosimiri
              argues that given our ‘common humanity’ which is expressed in our
              interactions with each other (through language and shared ideas), African
              epistemology is not as distinct as its protagonists claim.

Thesis:          Out-of-school children: Life experiences of Mauritian learners.
Citation:        This narrative study explores experiences of out-of-school-children in their
                 homes, communities, schooling and rehabilitative institutional settings.
                 Despite reliance on violent negotiations of selfhood, their efforts are driven
                 by hopeful resistance to personal and systemic stigmatisation. Rather than
                 interpret the challenge as residing within the children themselves, the study
                 argues that a pedagogy of equity and the cultivation of critical hope policy
                 agendas are needed to counter structural marginalisation.

Citation:      Moraig Peden’s thesis investigates why and how sugarcane farmers learn
               to practice agriculture in sustainable ways. It presents the stories of four
               innovative commercial farmers in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. She finds that
               farmers’ communities of practice play a crucial role in their learning, identity
               development and sustainable farming practices. This ground-breaking study
               advances communities of practice theory in agriculture and generates new
               ideas for farmers’ environmentally sustainable learning and practice.

                manifests, its impact and factors associated with it. The socio-cultural and social
                cognitive theories framed the study. Findings indicate that cyber bullying is
                increasing due to inappropriate use of technology, that both boys and girls are
                susceptible to it, and that teachers need empathy training to raise awareness

               Screening of physical and mental health at entry is critical. Mental health

                  demonstrates the ways in which Black women can and do become professors,
                  but also demonstrates the problematic and intersected systems of racism and

                 understood Turnitin as a resource for establishing what is cognitively missing
                 from students’ development in order to educated them. They further understood
                 that Turnitin worked as a marking rubric in the assessment of mathematics.
