700 capped at Limkokwing

MASERU – THE Minister of Education and Training Professor Ntoi Rapapa says the government sees Limkokwing University of Technology (LUCT) as a strategic partner in the development of Lesotho.
Rapapa was speaking at a graduation ceremony that saw 700 students being capped last Thursday.

He said the university is unique because it incorporates concepts from the West and the East. Graduates must therefore consider themselves fortunate to have studied at such a university, he said.
“That alone has put you ahead of many graduates worldwide,” he said.
Prof Rapapa said the university had brought a fresh approach to education in the Kingdom.

He said students will receive globally recognised qualifications while studying here in Maseru.
The founder of the university Dr Lim Kok Wing said the graduates are easily among the most digitally-savvy and globally connected young people in the world today.
“You are well equipped to transform industry and help drive the globalisation of this country,” he said.

The graduates were enrolled in the Faculties of Business Management & Globalisation, Communication, Media & Broadcasting and many more.
The university has so far produced more than 8 000 graduates.
Graduates all stated that they were grateful to have been part of the university.

One of the graduates from Public Relations, Dozana Fokaze, spent most of her time in Eswatini.
She said in 2015 she was enrolled with the LUCT in that country.
However, her family was financially unstable so she had to defer her studies in 2016.
“I did not give up because here I am standing in front of you all graduating,” she said.

Fokaze said she left Eswatini and came back home to Lesotho three years ago. She said she was excited to come back home after 10 years.
But she was a little scared of the new reality.
Fokaze said before coming to Lesotho, she was always with her sister.
She said it occurred to her that she had to leave her comfort zone and live a new reality.

Fokaze said she is glad that she made the right decision to study in Lesotho.
And the LUCT has truly been their second home as students.
Fokaze said the LUCT provides an opportunity for both national and international students to network.
“This is a huge opportunity for us as students,” she said.
Fokaze said she could help others connect with the right people and help them understand the business culture.

“Similarly any other student from another country can help us do the same if we plan to internationalise our businesses,” she said.
Fokaze said Limkokwing is all about networking.
She encouraged students to maximize that purpose and to use their differences for the benefit of all.
Fokaze thanked the National Manpower Development Secretariat (NMDS) for sponsoring her.

Another graduate from the Faculty of International Business, Pearl Lawrence, said when she received an admission letter from LUCT she was very happy.
She said that is because she had previously withdrawn from another university.
“Therefore, this meant I was getting a second opportunity in studying and in life in general,” she said.

Lawrence said her journey at LUCT was fraught with challenges.
She said she gave up on herself too many times than she actually stood up and fought.
Lawrence said she even doubted her journey.
However, she managed to succeed because LUCT is a school of patience, faith and trust.
