I spent a few days in Pretoria to explore partnerships for Peoples-uni. Many possibilities presented themselves and I am most grateful to my host, Flavia Senkubuge from the School of Health Systems and Public Health at the University of Pretoria for all the contacts she created. The highlight was an opportunity to meet with three of the Peoples-uni graduates/tutors. The picture shows me with Ian Machingura who came from Harare to join in the whole visit, and Carole Metekoua and Kemi Babalola from Johannesburg. Despite the wonders of communication online, the opportunity to meet face to face led us to share ideas and was an inspiration for me.
