Book Launch

The book was officially launched by CUT Library and Information Services, highlighting its importance and relevance within the academic community and beyond.

Inspirational Origin

The inspiration for ’70 Women and One Man’ came after Prof. Makola received an invitation to address a women’s seminar in Welkom in 2012. He shared, “I was pondering what to say to them when God deposited a vision in my heart to talk to them about significant women in my life.”

Tribute to Mentorship

Prof. Makola also pays tribute to Archbishop Daniel Legoabe, who mentored him and inspired him to write books. “All of this happened because there was one man who believed in me, nurtured me physically, emotionally, and spiritually,” Prof. Makola stated.


CUT Chancellor, Madam Justice Mahube Molemela, who is one of the seventy women featured in the book, praised Prof. Makola’s acknowledgment of the influence of women in his life. She highlighted the importance of recognizing the role played by women in society and the power of meaningful conversations.


’70 Women and One Man’ is not just a book; it is a testament to the impact of women in shaping individuals’ lives. Prof. Makola’s journey and his tribute to significant women serve as an inspiration and a reminder of the power of relationships and the quest for meaning in life.
