Following the revelations surrounding the dubious degrees conferred by Trinity International Bible University, Minister of Higher Education Blade Nzimande issued a statement condemning the institution’s actions.

Nzimande asserted that Trinity International Bible University is not registered and therefore lacks the authority to confer any qualifications, including honorary degrees.


In light of these findings, concerns have been raised regarding the validity of the honorary doctorate bestowed upon actor Sello Maake kaNcube. Despite Maake kaNcube’s celebratory posts on social media, quoting Bible verses and expressing gratitude for the honor, questions have been raised about the legitimacy of the degree.

Minister Nzimande emphasized the department’s efforts to address the issue, stating that previous warnings had been issued to Trinity International Bible University to cease its illegal operations and regularize its status.

Additionally, the Council on Higher Education (CHE) has been consulted for guidance on the proper procedures for awarding honorary qualifications.

Veli Mbele, spokesperson for the Department of Higher Education and Training, expressed deep concern over Trinity International Bible University’s disregard for regulations. Mbele highlighted the department’s commitment to taking decisive action against both the institution and any individuals involved in undermining regulatory standards.

The department aims to engage with Trinity International Bible University and the affected celebrities to clarify its position and protect the integrity of the country’s education system. Mbele emphasized the department’s legal responsibility to safeguard the credibility of qualifications and uphold the standards of post-school education and training.

Concerns arose on social media, with one Twitter user pointing out the dubious nature of the degrees conferred, stating, “I am sorry Sello but I think you were scammed here!

An Institution of higher learning that is not registered to offer PhD can’t give honorary PhDs! Secondly don’t you see it weird that your PhD was conferred in a warehouse!”

Serunye, who once sold cakes on the streets to make ends meet, rose to fame through her performances on screen. Her portrayal of Jacobeth Thobakgale in Skeem Saam garnered her widespread recognition. However, it has come to light that her academic credentials may not hold up to scrutiny.

Similarly, Maake kaNcube, celebrated for his extensive career in television, film, and theatre, recently announced his receipt of a Doctorate in Philosophy from Frinety International Bible University. While initially hailed as a significant achievement, doubts have surfaced regarding the legitimacy of the institution and the degrees it awards.

Despite these revelations, both actors have left indelible marks on South African entertainment. Serunye’s dedication to her craft and Maake kaNcube’s impactful performances have resonated with audiences for years. Yet, the recent expose underscores the importance of thorough vetting and scrutiny in the realm of academic and professional credentials.
