Women on the Move: ‘If your soul wants it, GO FOR IT.’, Dr Nothemba Mrwetyana

Dr Nothemba Mrwetyana has 32 years’ experience in Higher Education, of which she served two five-year periods as registrar at Fort Hare University. She assumed duty as the registrar of the Central University of Technology, Free State on 1 September 2013.

She holds a BA (History and Anthropology majors); UED (English and History Methods); a BEd; an MEd (Instruction- al Technology) from the University of Fort Hare; an MEd (Curriculum Studies: History) from Rhodes University; and a PhD (Technology in Education) from the University of Natal. She recently completed a Master of Philosophy (MPhil): Management Coaching from Stellenbosch University.

Juggling business and family is not an ‘either-or’ choice for her. “Both are equally necessary, so my choices are realistic. It requires planning to come up with a reasonable balance. As a single parent, I always hire helpers who assist me with family. I create jobs and get some of my home chores done – a win-win arrangement.”

Dr Nothemba’s time is precious. “My PA knows that I do not entertain 08:00 meetings. I open my laptop and check my priorities. I respond to emails that could be disastrous if at- tended to later. I reschedule my diary, if needed. I also drink a cup of tea… then I’m ready
to take on my functions.”

She advises young women not to allow anyone to deter them.
