The United National Transport Union (UNTU) is immensely proud to congratulate another eleven (11) 2020 MATRICS who passed what was surely the most trying academic year since our democracy.

This brings the total of the UNTU Matrics that will forever in history be remembered as the Covid-19 Matrics to 29 – an outstanding number!

Each member of UNTU knows that our future lies in the hands of our children.

The Matrics of 2020 had to endure the severely devastating impact of the global outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic but still managed to rise to the occasion and exceed all expectations against all odds.

UNTU would like to applaud them, their parents, grandparents, godparents, uncles, aunts, loved ones, and friends who supported them, believed in them, and had a helping hand available to help them to reach their goals. With hard work, commitment, and dedication we will turn our dreams into a reality.

Congratulations to the following 2020 Matrics and their parents:

  1. Chloé Wahl, daughter of Carla Wahl, UNTU member Transnet Engineering.
