Good new for Sekhukhune District| Bapedi Kingdom and TUT have urged a plan to implement a Campus

These are actually interesting news for Sekhukhune District. Some few developments in the district will definitely create job opportunities to some in Limpopo.

The Department of Higher Education and Training have came to a plan of establishing a TUT campus in some parts of Ga-Sekhukhune in Limpopo.

Tshwane University of Technology and the Kingdom of Bapedi have set down to discuss the plan to establish a campus.

So far they are planning to locate the campus at the old Sekhukhune Teaching College, since it's no longer in operation.

The plan has been approved by the Department of Higher Education.

The Bapedi royal house and TUT have came into conclusion to etablish the TUT in the coming future and they have signed memorandum of understanding.

At the month TUT is on 18 months feasibility study. TUT campus in Sekhukhune District will put more of its focus on the fields of mining and agriculture, Deputy Vice Chancellor in Teaching, Learning and Technology Professor Stanley Mukhola emphasized.

He said:

“We are grateful to be accepted in the Sekhukhune area to start what I call, not a satellite, but a distant campus. So the idea is start a new campus here focusing mainly in mining and agriculture. We believe in taking education to the people. We realise that there is nothing dealing with mining, there is a very good infrastructure, the Sekhukhune training college, the old one, where we say now we can make use of that facility".

The Kingdom says before King Victor Thulare III could pass away he had an idea of building a university in Sekhukhune.

Ntoampe Mampuru who is the Spokesperson, says the recent Queen Manyaku Thulare says the consensus made between TUT and the Royal House keeps the legacy that King Victor III wished for Sekhukhune.

Mampuru reiterated on this words:

“Our queen mother blessed this day, that we have to sign this memorandum of understanding and she was very happy that we continue looking at the visions of the late king Thulare and their programs, so they can continue".

“I can say it is a good thing. These things are likely to come, but we are lucky to have Sekhukhune campus. I feel good because it will help us. Our parents are jobless and all the staff, so this university will help us.”

This has brought so much joy in the youth of Sekhukhune.

After TUT settles it's feasibility study it's then that they could agree on official date to establish the University.
