An economics strategist urged graduates to use their power judiciously and not abuse it as well as to strive to respect others including the poor and vulnerable despite their race, religion or political persuasion.

Dr Thabi Leoka, an economist at Argon Asset Management, was the guest speaker at a graduation ceremony of the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences.

She said leadership is a product of social influence and that opportunity of leadership is power to make a difference.

“Power of leadership always comes with the requirement to be a responsible leader.”

She congratulated the graduates on their great achievement, but warned them of the country’s challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment.

During the ceremony, the university awarded Lou Chloe Zagagnoni the coveted Dean’s Medal. Lou who graduated with a National Diploma in Tourism Management obtained 16 distinctions out of 18 subjects with a final aggregate of 87% over the three years of study.
