Posted on August 12, 2013

The Sign of Honour was awarded to Prof Lubuma at an official ceremony held in Sofia on 19 June 2013. Prof Sendov, full member of the Academy, highlighted at the ceremony the contribution of Prof Lubuma to Mathematics and to the joint research initiatives between the University of Pretoria and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences as well as the need to explore further opportunities for research collaboration between the two institutions and the two countries. In a lighter spirit he also remarked: "Considering the contemporary means of communication, sharing a time zone (which the two countries do) might be more advantageous than sharing a hemisphere (which they do not)."
