2011-10-15 00:00

THE Nelson Mandela speech contest for schools, sponsored by The Witness, ended with the prize-giving at the Tatham Art Gallery last night.

Tyla Shane Reddy of Raisethorpe High School won the English section with her speech about the evil committed by people against each other and the world.

Her speech reflected on the world envisioned by Nelson Mandela and what the world is actually becoming.

Anele Mkhize of Girls’ High School took an insightful and humorous look at the lives of transactional relationships — sugar mamas and sugar daddies — to win the Zulu section. “This was about the things that I see in everyday life,” she said.

The runners-up in the English category were Qondiswe James of Epworth School and Olwenkosi Madikizela of Silver Heights Secondary.

In the Zulu category the runners-up were Brendon Nithianandham of Zakhe Agricultural College and Nomganelo Radebe of Fundokuhle High.

Rotary scholarships went to Minenhle Zondi of Marion High and Chauque Nokulanga of Eastwood Secondary.
