Speaking at the same event, the Minister of Education and Training Mr Mokoto Hloaele said the new members’ appointment spoke volumes of their expected commitment to the efficiency and ultimate effectiveness they will have on the campus through their good management.

“As Councillors you are entrusted to move this institution forward. As you take office this year, you will find many achievements, challenges as well as plans laid down to improve this university and retain its integrity as well as image,” he said. 

The Council's tenure in office he said comes at a time when there are many challenges, such as the ministry’s limited budget to provide adequate subvention to the university among others. 

For his part, NUL’s Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Kananelo Mosito was hopeful that the new generation of thoughts will make the university thrive through decades to come. He believed the new members will be guided by relationship of trust between the Council and other structures of the institution.
