This is the highest honour the fraternity bestows on an individual whose contribution shapes the evolution of the discipline, both as a science and as praxis. The fraternity finds Vil-Nkomo's scholarship authoritative, while his contribution to the transformation of the public service remains an indelible imprint on the history of the post-apartheid state.
