Out going SRC farewell dinner

Out going SRC farewell dinner

By Wandipa Gachala

The Vice Chancellor’s Office recently held a farewell dinner for the outgoing Student Representative Council Cabinet. The purpose of the event was to acknowledge them for the dedication and resilience they showed during their tenure as students’ advocates.

Speaking during the event, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation Prof Abraham A. Ogwu commended the outgoing 2021/22 SRC cabinet for the sterling job and leadership skills they portrayed during their tenure. Prof Ogwu emphasised that this assignment of leading other students should not be taken lightly as it paves way for them to be future leaders in the industry.

He said the University recognises the special contribution that the cabinet made to the institution as there was minimum students displeasure because of the cabinet’s professional advocacy for students’ needs and advice to the management on many issues.

Prof Ogwu wished the outgoing cabinet the best in their future endeavours and reminded them that BIUST will always be their second home. He urged them to work hand in hand with the new SRC for the betterment of the University.

When giving a vote of thanks, the Outgoing SRC President Mr Kago Mothupi appreciated his cabinet for the resilience they portrayed during their tenure. He said the dedication and unity made them achieve their mandate and promises to the student body.

He said the biggest highlight in their tenure was the introduction of the Ministry of Research in the Cabinet. “The introduction of the Ministry of Research was imperative as a STEM University as it will facilitate the core business of the University,” Mothupi said.

The outgoing president urged the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs to always welcome the new cabinet and guide them so that they realise their mandate of existence.
