THE ENGINEERING BEHIND NUL’S FIRST BIOGAS PLANT

One thing is not in doubt; the National University of Lesotho (NUL)’s first biogas plant is an engineering feat! When completed, it will be one of the few, if not the only, of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere!

For nearly half a decade, Dr Sissay Bekele Mekbib and his students were submerged into their Biology labs to experiment with microalgae (bolele) as a means to produce biogas. This platform covered that extraordinary story again and again.

What you don’t know, however, is how Dr Mekbib is now working to do the same thing outside the lab. Behold! We will tell you!

MUSIC GIANT OF THE NUL PRODUCES ANOTHER BLAZING ALBUM

It is an album that will leave you hypnotized! That is in the true sense of the word. In it, you will come to grips with some of the greatest voices of our times, weaved into a repertoire by the National University of Lesotho (NUL) lecturer, Mr Mape Mohlomi.

University, they say, should be a place that abounds with possibilities. Therein, you are not modeled by the realities of the world around you. Instead, you model them.

Perhaps at no place does this reality adopt its truest form, than at the National university of Lesotho.
