Professor Paulos Muzomuhle Zulu has a passion for education, youth development and the promotion of black academia. In 1986 he started a post-graduate research internship as a training ground for African academics. He organised a Saturday School Programme and the University of Natal for Grades 10 to 12. Over a thousand learners went through the school each year, with the majority improving their matric grades against tough odds. As Pro-Vice Chancellor of Students, he instilled a culture of accountability, discipline and moral probity in the student leadership and governance. His Unit has developed a curriculum in leadership and governance for Amakhosi and currently twenty-two Amakhosi are studying for this certificate at UKZN.
