More achievements for UFS Debating Society
2012-07-23

The UFS Debate Society represented the university well at the National Universities Debating Championships. The tournament, dubbed Kgorong 2012, was hosted at the Turfloop Campus of the University of Limpopo from 4 to 11 July 2012.

The UFS team took on university teams from across the country and six of the eight speakers representing Kovsies made it through the preliminary rounds. Four Kovsie speakers went as far as the semi-finals.

Two members of the team, Zola Valashiya and Mhlanganisi Madlongolwana, were ranked amongst the top ten speakers in the English First Language division and Jonathan Ruwanika was ranked amongst the top ten speakers for the English Second Language division.

The five adjudicators on the team of thirteen also did well. Richard Chemaly received an award for adjudicating the final debate. The team is now preparing for the Pan-African Championships, which will be hosted by the Tshwane University of Technology in December.
