MANDENI Municipality mayor Sphesihle Zulu applauded and acknowledged matric top achievers at the Sibusisiwe Hall boardroom on Wednesday, January 10.

Of the three top achievers, Nkanyiso Mhlongo from Thokoza section in Ward 7 matriculated at Impoqabulungu High School and intends to study medicine at Wits.

Sandile Ngubande from Matsheketsheni area in Ward 5 and Ndumiso Sikhakhane from Masomonco area in Ward 10 both matriculated at uDumo High School.

Although they matriculated in the same school they will pursue different careers.

Ngubande wants to study law at the University of Zululand and Sikhakhane intends to study pharmacy at UKZN.

Mhlongo obtained seven A’s while both Ndumiso Skhakhane and Sandile Ngubande attained six distinctions each.

“I would like to congratulate you all for hoisting Mandeni’s flag high and also putting Mandeni on the map.

“Hard work pays and every pupil can achieve this if they put more focus on their studies. I would also like to extend my thanks to the parents for allocating time for these pupils to study and I will be failing in my duty if I do not thank the pupils for showing dedication to their studies and refraining from drugs and alcohol in school.

“uDumo High School, where I matriculated back in the day, has changed things as it achieved a higher pass rate percentage as compared to last year and this also needs to be applauded,” said Zulu.

Zulu advised the pupils to go and represent Mandeni and their families in the institutions of higher learning and cautioned them not to get involved in drugs and alcohol.

“For now, please ensure that you stick to your studies and the rest will follow,” he said.
