On Monday we traveled to Mmabatho where we will be staying for the next three weeks. The 300 km trip took more than five hours.
After checking into the hotel Professor emeritus Modise Maaja gave us a short introduction to the history of the North-West university. It is actually the merger of three universities, those of Potchefstroom, Mahikeng and Vanderbijlpark. We are on the Mahikeng campus. The Mahikeng university was started in 1980 by the locals with money collected house by house. Therefore there is a strong local affinity, it is a university of the people.
In the evening we worked hard with team to get our presentation for the next day into shape.
