Condolence message regarding the sudden passing of Ms Val Boje, Chairperson of the National Press Club

Ms Val Boje

The Principal and Vice Chancellor of Unisa, Professor Puleng LenkaBula and the entire Unisa community extend our collective condolences to the National Press Club, the media fraternity, family, friends and colleagues of Ms Boje.

Ms Boje was a long-standing friend of the university with whom, as journalist and Editor of the Pretoria News, we worked closely for a long period in the positioning of brand Unisa. As Chairperson of the National Press Club, who are Unisa’s partners in hosting the Annual Percy Qoboza Memorial Lecture, she jointly worked with our designated internal team in ensuring the successful hosting of the lecture.   

On behalf of the entire Unisa community, I extend our collective condolences to the National Press Club, the media fraternity, family, friends and colleagues of Ms Boje.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult period.
