TWO Durban University of Technology students have won the Nat Nakasa Essay competition.

Sbongakoke Mbatha and Qiniso Mbili, along with Nkamogelang Lebeloane from Tshwane University of Technology, received their award last week at the Nat Nakasa Memorial Lecture.

All three students currently study journalism and had to write 600 word essay on the impact the anti-apartheid writer had on them.

Each received a laptop and a three-month internship at a local media house of their choice.

The competition was arranged by the Department of Arts and Culture and the South African National Editor’s Forum. — WR.
