Lesotho Times - - News - ’Man­toetse Maama

THE Le­sotho Na­tional De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (LNDC) on Mon­day this week re­warded four whizkids from Limkok­wing Univer­sity of Cre­ative Tech­nol­ogy (LUCT), Cen­tre for Ac­count­ing Stud­ies (CAS), Lerotholi Poly­tech­nic (LP) and Na­tional Univer­sity of Le­sotho (NUL).

The quar­tet — Matšeliso Mosola ( BA Eco­nomics-nul), ‘Mamorabe Sello ( BA En­trepreneur­ship-luct), Mpo­neng Manyeli (Char­tered Ac­coun­tant- CAS) and Mpholle Hopo (Diploma in Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment-lp) — were pre­sented with lap­tops dur­ing a brief cer­e­mony held at the LNDC head of­fice in Maseru.

LNDC Head of Plan­ning, Re­search and In­for­ma­tion Man- age­ment, Mote­bang Mokoaleli, said the ges­ture sought to recog­nise spe­cial stu­dents at the four in­sti­tu­tions.

“We ad­vised our­selves, as LNDC, to recog­nise top achievers in th­ese in­sti­tu­tions in or­der to en­cour­age them and also show ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their hard work.

“You are now ready to face the cor­po­rate world and we ex­pect you to ex­cel in or­der to con­trib- ute to the de­vel­op­ment of this coun­try,” Mr Mokoaleli said at the han­dover cer­e­mony, adding he was pleased to note there were three ladies in the group of high-achievers.

“We used to say it’s a man’s world, but with th­ese statis­tics, we can now say this is a ladies’ world as we are rep­re­sented by just one man.”

Mr Mokoaleli fur­ther told the grad­u­ates he hoped they would show the same com­mit­ment at the work­place in or­der to ex­cel.

On be­half of the grad­u­ates, Ms Mosola ex­pressed grat­i­tude to the LNDC ges­ture.

“We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate this ges­ture be­cause it’s not easy for a aca­demic to work with­out a lap­top and for that we thank LNDC for th­ese presents,” Ms Mosola said.

“It was not easy to ob­tain th­ese good re­sults but we fi­nally made it to the top through the support we re­ceived from our rel­a­tives and lec­tur­ers.”

LNDC is wholly owned by the gov­ern­ment and charged with im­ple­ment­ing the coun­try’s in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment poli­cies.
