Change the world


Dear Maties

It is with deep sadness that the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (George Campus) received the news that Prof. Russel Botman has passed.

It was always clear that Russel greatly cared about and bravely fought for the peaceful and just transformation of South Africa, from apartheid to democracy.

The universe has lost a great humanist, leader, academic and theologian who inspired us all to hope and work for a better world.

We extend our sincere condolences to his wife and children.

God bless you all.


Prof. Quinton Johnson

Campus Principal
