Written by: Barbara Friedman

ANC Western Cape leader Cameron Dugmore and promising ICT entrepreneur Sibongile Mbhele about efforts to get Mbhele to complete his studies through the Emeritus Institute of Management in Singapore.

Dugmore has launched a fundraising effort.

Sibongile passed his first two modules with flying colours, but the deadline to raise R50,000 was today.

Dugmore says he is so inundated with requests he seldom puts out personal requests but says Sibongile is such a wonderful person and has come so far.

Some assistance had come in over the past few days but then on Wednesday night, Solly and Zohra Noor of the Solly and Zohra Noor Foundation donated the entire R50,000 needed to complete Mbhele's studies.

Solly is an incredible man.
