10-Year old talks to UFS MBA graduates and alumni
2007-09-19

MBA alumni and graduandi of the School of Management at the University of the Free State (UFS) last week attended a gala function in Bloemfontein. The guest speaker was Thuli Manunga, winner of this year's ATKV debate competition. Thuli is 10 years old and a Grade 4 learner at the Elardus Park Primary School in Pretoria. She stole the audience's hearts with her speech about parents who play too little with their children. She is fluent in Afrikaans, English and Xhosa and started her speech by saying: "Ladies and Gentlemen, when last did you laugh out loud? If I can say one thing to parents of today, it will be that they should play more with their children. There is no age restriction on playing!" Pictured here is Thuli with Prof. Helena van Zyl, (Director of the UFS School of Management).
