Be a law-abiding road-rule citizen these holidays
Follow the rules of the road to be safe.

Road crashes are a major cause of deaths globally, and particularly during the March-April holidays in South Africa. Therefore, abiding by the rules of the road serves to curb the high number of fatalities and is highly recommended. We urge all staff and students to take caution on the roads to ensure a safe return to the campuses next term.

According to Arrive Alive, some of the leading accident causes include drunk driving, failure to wear seatbelts, driver inexperience, driver fatigue, distracted driving and walking, as well as bravado. Be sure to avoid this at all cost.

Obeying the rules of the road saves lives. In 2016, Arrive Alive partnered with the UFS BSafe Campaign to educate students on becoming more responsible drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. For more road safety tips, visit the Arrive Alive website here.

The UFS’s Qwaqwa Campus will be hosting the inaugural Morena Paulus Mopeli Mokhachane Memorial Lecture on Saturday 6 September 2014 at 10:00 in the Rolihlahla Mandela Hall.

The theme for the lecture is 'Embracing Traditional Leadership in South Africa' and will be delivered by Dr Nyefolo Malete from the Department of African Languages.

As part of the lecture, UFS students have already entered the essay- and poetry-writing competitions where the theme is explored from different writing angles. The lecture will be preceded by a schools public speaking contest centred on the theme.

The event will be hosted in partnership with the Mopeli Royal Family and the Free State House of Traditional Leaders.
