Lesotho Alumnus Lunch

The Alumni Relations Office co-ordinated a very successful and well attended alumnus get-together in Lesotho on Saturday, 6 May 2017.

The event held at the Avani Maseru Hotel in Maseru took the form of a three-course lunch and an informative address by Vice-Chancellor and Principal of UKZN – Dr Albert van Jaarsveld. Dr van Jaarsveld updated everyone with a comprehensive overview of the University and spoke of the recent successes, rankings and future plans.

Mr Fanle Sibisi (President of Convocation) extended the appreciation of the Convocation Executive and that of UKZN to the group for the excellent attendance at the event and informed everyone that this was the first of many events to follow in Lesotho. Sibisi elaborated on various issues and happenings at the University which included the recent 2017 April graduations, the newly elected Convocation Executive and the need to “give-back” to your alma mater.

The attendees showed considerable interest in their alma mater and dozens of questions were asked in the session after the addresses by van Jaarsveld and Sibisi. A number of the graduates were keen to further their studies at the University and requested information on post-graduate studies as well as study opportunities for family members.

The attendees expressed an interest in forming an official Lesotho Alumnus Association and they were encouraged to do this. The Alumni Relations Office aims to assist the grouping with their planning and the promotion of activities through the recently created Lesotho Facebook site and through the other social media sites managed by Alumni Relations.

All attendees went home with information packs containing a selection of University publications and a corporate gift.
