Cobras player graduates with Honours degree in Economics

Posted by Johan Fourie on 2014-12-11

Omphile Ramela, a cricket player for the Cape Cobras, was one of the Honours (Economics) students to graduate at the December graduation ceremony yesterday. Ramela completed his undergraduate studies in PPE, did an Honours in Philosophy and then decided to do another Honours degree, this time in Economics. His Honours dissertation compared the economic institutions of the Zulu and Tswana cultures.

Ramela has had to juggle his course commitments with playing professional cricket. In September, he traveled with the Cape Cobras team to India to play in the Champions League. He has been a stalwart in the Cape Cobras RamSlam T20 team since then, scoring the third most runs in the team and 14th most in the tournament. The Department wishes him the best for the final match in the competition on Friday night.
