Dean of Informatics and Design supports CANSA Shavathon


Talk about a close shave! On Saturday 16 February, Dean of Informatics and Design, Prof Johannes Cronje, had his 3-year old ponytail shaved off as part of the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) Shavathon.

The same day, numerous other concerned people throughout the country came together in shopping malls to have their heads shaved or sprayed in aid of cancer research. The donated hair is being used to create wigs for burn, scar, alopecia (hair loss) and cancer patients.

Prof Cronje believes in the social responsibility of leaders. He has also participated in AIDS testing on 11 September 2007 and feels that this was another way to show concern for the community at large.
