The party's top leadership was out in numbers to celebrate her achievement. Deputy president Floyd Shivambu, treasurer general Leigh-Ann Mathys and national chairperson Dali Mpofu wore their graduation gowns and red berets as they cheered for Mkhaliphi from the front row.
Julius Malema, who was unable to attend, took to Twitter to convey a heart-warming message to his colleague.
My heart is sore as I won't be joining EFF Deputy Secretary-General @DSGmkhaliphi at the graduation ceremony of her Honours Degree in Public Administration tonight at Unisa.
