The vacancy that was in the office of the Chancellor of SMU is now filled by Dr Zwelini (Zweli) Mkhize after he was recently elected to the portfolio by the Council of the University. Dr Mkhize is the second Chancellor for SMU after the first Chancellor, Dr B EE Molewa, passed on, in 2018.

Dr Mkhize was also appointed Minister of Health in May 2019 by President Cyril Ramaphosa. He is however, no stranger to the portfolio of a university Chancellor as he previously served as a Chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) from 2009 to 2017.
