Upskilling starts at home

It is always nice to see young black daughters and sons of the South African soil graduating. Congratulations to you all, most especially those who hail from my beloved village.

Keep developing yourselves! Keep acquiring skills!

To borrow from the humble former US first lady, Mrs Michelle Obama, ‘may we, when we’ve worked hard and done well and walked through that doorway of opportunity, dare not slam it shut behind us. May we reach back and we give other folks the same chances that helped us succeed.’

Let us use our skills to improve our beloved village.
