Nesengani, who is popular for her role as Chief Azwindini’s mother was conferred with a PhD Degree last week by the University of South Africa (UNISA).

Nesengani doctoral dissertation was written in her home language, Tshivenda and it focused on Gender-Based Violence (GBV). According to sources close to the actress, Word Of Mouth Pictures and SABC are planning a big celebration next Wednesday; 09 December to pay homage to Vho-Masindi for her historic and momentous achievement.

The 66-year-old actress, who is a former teacher and retired from teaching in 2014, said she discovered her love for acting in 1974 and joined Muvhango in 2008.

“While doing this I was also a teacher because I also loved teaching. I only retired in 2014 because I was 60. I then started acting full-time.”

When asked in an interview the actress said she doesn’t plan to retire from Muvhango and will never leave the soapie unless they write her out.

“They made me a household name and I’ll forever be grateful. That’s why I’ll die there. People should expect to see me on Muvhango until I take my last breath.”

Nesengani further stated in an interview that being on the soapie has been a great journey,

“Old women I bump into praise my character and say she must continue protecting her son. Young ladies call Vho-Masindi mean.”

Ramakuwela Hangwani who plays the part of Mulalo Mukwevho congratulated the actress on his social media page:

“Vho Regina Nesengani, who plays the part of Vho-Masindi, in the popular SABC 2 drama, Muvhango, was last week conferred with a PhD Degree by the University of South Africa, (UNISA). Ladies and gentleman, we present to you Dr. Nesengani. #Muvhango #wordofmouth #vhomasindi. “
