UKZN conferred degrees on 1977 graduands. Among them was Durban metro police Superintendent Khanyisani Mthembu, 38, who obtained his Bachelor of Law degree.
“I’ve always wanted to be a cop because law is my passion. When I was 18 years old I joined the SAPS in 1999, and I thought I got what I wanted.
“As the years went by, I wanted more and then I left the SAPS to join the metro police. I decided to do a diploma in policing and that’s how I ended up being the educator at the training academy.
“I realised that I needed to know more about law and justice. When I found an opportunity to do my LLB, I took it, thanks to metro department,” he said.
