By: Winston Sibanda
It was a colorful evening at the ML Sultan campus as DUT’s International Office held a farewell dinner on Friday.
Coordinator of the International Students Organisation (ISO), Angel Motsamai, said that the event was in celebration of the end of the academic year.
She urged students to fly the DUT flag high in their respective countries.
“You are our ambassadors- as the International Office we request that you bring more students from your countries to DUT,” said Motsamai.
Out-going ISO president, Christopher Muhwava from Zimbabwe, urged people not to give up on their quest to become better people and develop their countries.
He acknowledged his term in office made him stronger.
Muhwava said, “It’s not an easy job- at times you don’t even have a response for some queries. Juggling school, ISO and work made me a better leader.”
He urged the incoming committee to be stable mentally when dealing with issues to attain best results.
Incoming ISO president, Ayooluwa Abiolu, said that he was looking forward to a great 2015 working with ISO. He expressed gratitude at being elected to represent the international students body.
He said, “Thank you for putting your faith in me. Hopefully we are going to have a fruitful year next year.”
Students were urged to engage and know one another.
Motsamai highlighted the importance of the engagement of country leaders in the ISO committee. She said it was essential so that every country can be represented as well as engage in ISO programmes.
She urged students to select their country leaders and forward the names to the International office.
