He is an Administrative assistant at the Transport Department at Nelson Mandela University. His passion for the University comes from its mission and values.
According to Lithemba, Executive Committee members have the responsibility to oversee the implementation of the Associations’ programmes and ensure good governance practices as elected representatives. He enjoys being involved in strategic planning and decision-making which aligns processes and practices with the vision, mission, and values of the Association and University.
Lithemba shares, “I would like to make a clarion call on all Alumni who are in ranks to offer internships, bursaries and employment opportunities to Mandela graduates. A call is made to all Mandela graduates to contribute to debt relief funding to enable graduates to receive their certificates and be able to apply for employment. Alumni must be an extension of the Alumni Association in various parts of the world and country and should be involved in community outreach programmes targeting especially rural areas and schools where career guidance and computer literacy programmes are desperately needed.”
