ESAYIDI Tvet College and the Media Information Communications and Technology (Micta) Seta launched their radio production and film, television and video production learnership programme at Margate Hotel on Thursday evening.

ANC secretary Mzwandile Mkwanazi spoke on behalf of the new Ugu District Municipality mayor Tolomane Mnyayiza, who was unable to attend the function.

Mkwanazi said the talent of many will be showcased during the programme and they congratulate the college on this developmental programme.

College rector Dr Sipho Nzimande said 50 pupils have enrolled for this programme, all from rural areas.

He said what stands out for him is that these pupils have the ability and strong minds and he is confident they will “make it”.

Nzimande is looking forward to making use of the partnership the college has with 1 KZN television station, which has committed to assist with the programme.

“We are really looking forward to the partnership we have with 1KZN and encourage organisations and churches to make use of this platform the college and the station has created in our district,” said Nzimande.

Nzimande said he is grateful for the opportunity for the youth and thanks Mict Seta.

The guest list included actor Sello Maake Ka Ncube, who has performed in theatre, film and television in his native land, as well as in the U.S., Britain, Canada, and Europe. He was also a guest speaker and told pupils that nothing beats belief.

He also recited a poem he wrote to Nakedi Ribane, actress and former model whom he believes is an example of what can be achieved when one perseveres.
“The poem I wrote to Nakedi is titled Siyazazi and speaks about how birds of the same feather flock together. It speaks of the sound of the rhythm of our culture,” he said. Guests were entertained by a college student, Palesa Dunywa, who did a stage solo and by Thanda Mavundla a songstress from the college.

Mbongeni Mathe from the Office of the Premier, congratulated the college for embarking on the programme and said this is exactly the vision­ of former Premier Senzo Mchunu, who always dreamt of advancing talent in KZN.
