The Durban University of Technology (DUT) will honour the Chief of the SA Navy, Vice Admiral Refiloe Johannes Mudimu, with an honorary doctorate on Thursday.

The DUT said in a statement that, since March 2005 when Mudimu took over office, education in the service had improved with many officers’ progress in their studies, opening the path for empowerment and growth.

He already holds a Masters Degree in Military Science and an Honours Degree in Public Management and Governance, among other civilian and naval qualifications.
