A group of University of Zululand students, who took part in the Reed Dance Festival, took time out to pose for pictures at the University’s exhibition stand. Seen with the maidens is CMD staff member Sphamandla Gumede.

The UNIZULU flag was hoisted high at this year’s Umkhosi Womhlanga (Reed Dance Festival) with over 40 students from the university joining the more than 30 000 maidens who converged at the eNyokeni palace outside Nongoma.

The University also had a successful career exhibition at the event with more than 5 000 maidens visiting the UNIZULU exhibition stand over two days. Most of those who visited the stand expressed interest in studying at the University.
