Speaking on behalf of her sisters, Zandile, the youngest said as a family they are proud of their achievements. She attributed their success to their enthusiasm and responsible parents and the effort they put into their work. “We are a big family and we are proud that most of us have graduated from DUT. Nokuthula is even more excited that she is getting her degree, she has been working hard and has longed for it,” said Zandile. She advised scholars to concentrate on their studies to obtain good results that will enable them to gain access to higher education.
