Don’t boy­cott grad­u­a­tion pleads Chair­per­son Dr Khosie Mthetwa

Observer on Saturday - - News -

r Khosie Mthetwa, when in­formed that stu­dents have been given an ul­ti­ma­tum to ei­ther pay for the grad­u­a­tion or be pre­pared to pay E1 000, promised to check man­age­ment on the is­sue, plead­ing for time to get an un­der­stand­ing on what has caused the

Din­sti­tu­tion to opt to make stu­dents pay this time when their grad­u­a­tion is due even though it’s been post­poned sev­eral times.

Anger

Dr Mthetwa pleaded with stu­dents not to let their anger with cer­tain of­fi­cials stop them from at­tend­ing their own grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony, say­ing this is a once off op­por­tu­nity. Dr Mthetwa dis­closed that she was not aware of the cur­rent sce­nario, but promised to talk to the man­age­ment on the is­sue.

How­ever, Dr Mthetwa said as a par­ent her­self all she wishes is for stu­dents to bury their anger and grad­u­ate.

“I know anger can make peo­ple do things they will later re­gret, so I plead with the stu­dents not to let this op­por­tu­nity pass them.

They should con­sider that in ev­ery course you do, you grad­u­ate once and con­sider the fact that it’s also for your par­ents to re­joice with you ony­our achieve­ment.”
