PHUTHADITJHABA. – It is official. All the councillors of the Maluti-a-Phofung Local Municipality are computer literate.

After the councillors attended a one year computer course at the Twin Peak Technology Computer and Management College, they were awarded their certificates at the recent graduation ceremony that was held in the Phuthaditjhaba Multipurpose Hall in Qwaqwa.

Moses Mofokeng, the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Twin Peak College, encouraged the councillors not to stop studying and urged them to keep conquering.
