The outgoing Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Free State (UFS), Prof. Frederick Fourie, has donated a laptop computer to a security guard at the UFS to enable him to continue writing radio dramas.

Mr Teli Mohlakoana was one of the security guards dispatched to Prof. Fourie’s house at the time of the Reitz video incident.

Prof. Fourie said it was during that time that he noticed Mr Mohlakoana busy writing, and approached him to find out what he was writing. He told Prof. Fourie he was writing his latest drama for Lesedi FM, something he has been doing for years without a computer.

Mr Mohlakoana started writing radio dramas in 1997, and is currently working on three dramas with 35 episodes each. His first drama, “Na Ke Phoso” (Am I Wrong?) was aired in 2004. He said the laptop will make his job much easier.

“I am very happy to have received this gift, and I intend to use it to teach other people to write dramas”, he said.

Mr Mohlakoana is also busy writing a book titled “Dikapeso” (Graduations), as well as a stage play, with the assistance of the Drama Department. He started working for the UFS in 2006.
