Edgewood Football Club Supports Struggle Against COVID-19
Education students who are part of the Edgewood campus Football Club, the Lesotho Eagles, have taken a stand against the spread of the coronavirus by reaching out to the UKZN community with a message of support and encouragement.
Former team captain, Mr Leko Klate Ngema advised students to continue studying, saying: ‘It’s understandable to be frustrated and concerned about our studies that are on hold due to COVID-19. However, we must thank the President of South Africa and our Vice-Chancellor Professor Nana Poku for saving lives. Most students come from difficult backgrounds but you should use whatever means you have to study. Remember that you will make it and succeed.’
Senior player, Mr Teboho Hlao, added: ‘These are hard times but after this pandemic, we as students will have reflected and be recharged, to lead positive change in our communities.’
