His visit with his entourage to the institution was a response to a call by the vocational centre aimed at partnering with the ministry to assist in the growth and development of small businesses in Lesotho. During the tour that went through all the school’s departments, that comprise faculties of automotive, fitting and turning, electrical installation, engineering, panel beating, craft and other administrative programmes, Mr Pekane said he was enthralled by products and services produced by students; adding the latter was competent to hit a larger market.
Among products exhibited were a top class casket manufactured by the carpentry students and electrical circuits’ models to control huge machineries designed for various purposes. “When done, my model will be able to control how a lift should behave when transporting people and goods in tall buildings. It will have control buttons that will direct it when to move and when to stop via appropriate timing and programmed speed,” a second-year student in electrical installation, Moeketsi Tjamane, told the visitors.
