Dr Buyisiwe Sondezi is a rare breed. The University of Johannesburg student overcame early stumbling blocks as a young learner to become the first woman in Africa to be awarded a doctoral degree in experimental physics of highly correlated matter.
He went to school in the townships. Today, 22-year-old Wandile Mabanga is writing his dissertation in a field of quantum physics so specialised only two people on earth are qualified enough to supervise him.
