South African businessman Ishwar Ramlutchman has been honoured for his philanthropic work at an event hosted at the uMfolozi Casino Hotel Resort in Empangeni. The South African of Indian-origin received three honorary degrees from the Los Angeles Development Church and Institute.
He is also the only South African Indian to be adopted as a prince of the Zulu Kingdom. Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini lauded Ramlutchman for receiving the triple degrees. Zwelithini said that he gave Ishwar Ramlutchman the name of Mabheka Zulu, which means a person who cares for the people of Zulu, reports Republic World.
“When I adopted Ishwar Ramlutchman, I gave him the name of Mabheka Zulu. The name Mabheka means the one who cares for my people. This was done after his heroic dedication and achievements in serving the poorest of the poor in the Kingdom of the Province of KwaZulu-Natal”, Zwelithini said in a message.
Ramlutchman received an honorary doctoral degree in Humanitarianism and Conflict Resolution, an honorary master’s degree in Christian Religious Studies, and an honorary professor’s degree in Humanitarianism and Community Development.
