973 graduate from Limkokwing University



MASERU – Prime Minister Sam Matekane last Thursday told the 973 graduating students at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology to keep their focus.

“Make sure that you stay upright because you know your destination,” he said.

Matekane told the graduands that they should always remember that they are the “hope to take this country to the next level”.

“There will always be difficulties along the way,” he said.

He wished them good luck in their endeavours.

The graduation ceremony was held at the Lehakoe Sports and Recreational Centre.

This was their first physical graduation ceremony since the Covid-19 pandemic.

Present at the event was Queen ’Masenate Mohato Seeiso alongside Prime Minister Matekane as guests of honour.

The university chairman from Malaysia, Dato Raja Aznil, congratulated the class of 2022 graduates and welcomed them on their new journey.

This year’s theme “Designing your future”, assured the 973 new graduates to take on their future with confidence.

The Vice-Chancellor of Limkokwing University, Advocate Tefo Macheli, said the university has churned out job creators instead of job seekers as well as future leaders of the economy.

All the graduates came from six different faculties of the university.

The Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Education and Training, Dr John Oliphant, said Lesotho is waiting to see how these graduates will contribute towards the country’s future development.

Out of the 936 students who formed part of the graduating class of 2022, 593 were part of an internship programme, out of which 40 were placed in-house at the Limkokwing Entrepreneurship Acceleration Platform (LEAP) and 553 of them went for internship in the industry.

The LEAP programme is an initiative by Limkokwing University, which advocates for interns to learn more about the industry.

LEAP also helps the interns learn how to establish their own businesses.

It also delivers industry-ready and fully employable graduates who will in the near future undertake leadership roles in industry.

The university said this year’s graduates also included students from the newly introduced Tvet programme which was launched in 2020 and has been running successfully for two years now.

The Tvet programme consists of five Certificates in Innovative Travel and Tourism, Certificate in Business Information Technology, Certificate in Graphic Design, Certificate in Marketing and Certificate in Architectural Technology.
