Alumnus Flies UKZN Flag High
Education alumnus, Mr Luthando Molefe, was selected to represent KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa at the Young African Leaders Initiative Regional Leadership Centre Southern Africa’s (YALI RLC-SA) Leadership Development Programme for the Education Sector.
The programme is hosted at the University of South Africa’s (UNISA) Graduate School of Business Leadership in Midrand, South Africa. The pilot cohort will run until 6 March.
The YALI aims to invest in the next generation of African leaders and serves as a regional hub to encourage transformational learning and to enhance youth leadership skills. It has partnered with the Trevor Noah Foundation, a non-profit organisation that equips under-served youth with the educational foundation and opportunity to become resilient future leaders of South Africa.
Molefe was selected based on his academic excellence, community engagement, leadership skills and his commitment to positively impact his community, his country and the African continent.
Participants from Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Lesotho, Malawi, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Eswatini, Zambia and Zimbabwe are included in the programme.
An excited Molefe said, ‘I am very grateful and humbled to, once again, be given an opportunity to represent the country and province. I am really looking forward to critically engaging with my African brothers and sisters with the core objective of transforming our societies and the continent.’
