|Azwitamisi Shadrack Nthangeni, newly appointed Director of Sport and Recreation, is convinced that sport can be a very strong marketing tool for institutions of higher learning. “Through good marketing of the vibrant sport clubs, the large number of sporting codes and the variety of programmes the University offers, TUT could become more of a household name and the universtity of technology choice for South African learners.”
Inspiration from the words of former President Nelson Mandela, who said at the Inaugural Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award, Monaco, in 2000: “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where there was despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers.”
I would like to see a situation where both internal and external stakeholders embrace and are proud of TUT’s sport teams and clubs.
TUT is the largest residential university of technology in Southern Africa – in future, many more of its teams should compete in major national and international leagues and tournaments.
