Vaal University of Technology confers special posthumous award to prophet Nku

By Kamogelo Aphane

The VUT honoured the late Christina Mokotudi Nku for her divine contribution in the field of theology. This special award was received by Archbishop Billy Patrick Ramokoka, of the St John's Apostolic Church of Prophecy, on her behalf during the Faculty of Human Sciences' Spring graduation ceremony.

Nku was born on 20 April 1894 and died at the age of 94 in 1988. She was a mother to many in society and a great contributor to South Africa's community education. She experienced her first series of divine visions at the age of 12 and prophesied many events that later occurred in South Africa. Nku personally built the first St John Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa in Evaton with her son and facilitated the building of two primary schools on the church premises.

She believed that the only way to change ordinary lives was through education and the word of God.

Archbishop Ramokoka, who is the late prophet's grandson, thanked the University for the award which he said he knew his late grandmother would have been touched to receive.
