Kanyo came to durham in September 2006 to take an MA in Education. She was a member of St Chad's College, which is supporting the Ruth First Scholarship by providing subsidized accommodation.
Unfortunately, a dispute with her employers resulted in Kanyo having to return prematurely to South Africa, which meant that she was unable to complete her MA.
