THE Njabulo Ricardo Mthembu Foundation, in partnership with the KwaDukuza Municipality, held a matric prayer session for the class of 2018 ahead of their final examination at the Shayamoya Indoor Sport Complex on Wednesday, October 10.

The event was attended by various schools from around KwaDukuza and various stakeholders which included religious leaders, teacher union Sadtu, and Cosas, as well as community leaders. The local institutions of Higher learning also offered career guidance to the matriculants.

Nompumelelo Gumbi, of the Njabulo Ricardo Charity Trust, said the foundation believes in education and the doors it can open. “The trust is committed to assist those who cannot further their studies. Help is available, however, this assistance will only be granted by following the proper channels, which will be communicated on public platforms,” said Gumbi.

Youth Affairs Chairperson at KDM and Shayamoya ward Councillor John Phahla also emphasised the importance of education and encouraged scholars to do well in their exams as well as their studies. “The YSG portfolio committee has opened its doors to the youth of KwaDukuza and is looking forward to working with this year’s matriculants in the near future,” he said.

Kwadukuza Mayor Dr Ricardo Mthembu congratulated pupils on their last mile of high schooling. The mayor’s vision for this Matric Prayer was to revitalise the pupils belief that everything is possible for them.

“There are no limits in this life except the ones that we create for ourselves, and you must be focused on your studies as your prepare for your final examination and know that this journey requires you as an individual and not your friends,” said Mthembu.

Mthembu, through the Njabulo Ricardo Charity Trust, has vowed to continue to work with scholars through his foundation as there are many pupils who struggle to further their studies.

Higher education institutions who were present included Shakaland Technical College, Stanger FET College, Umfolozi TVET College and Boston College.
