SOTHO FOLKTALES TOLD IN MOVING DIGITAL CARTOONS BY NUL STUDENT

The National University of Lesotho (NUL) student, Mpho Sesiu, is reinventing Sotho folktales (Lits’omo tsa Basotho) to suit the 21st century reality by telling them in video cartoons.

So some of those who went to the mighty NUL Expo in January at the Pioneer Mall met an unexpected treat— a DVD containing just one Sotho folk-tale, “Mokoko le Phakoe,” by Mpho Sesiu. The few DVDs she displayed there were swept by captivated buyers within a blink of an eye. 

“I was taken by surprise,” Mpho said.

NUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP EXPO BY AYP

We live in an age of mass-media hyperbole. Things now are best-evers, greatest in x amount of time, the most this-or-that since records have been kept, biggest whatever since the last one. This time, it’s the mighty Academic Youth Progress (AYP) Entrepreneurship Expo 2018.

Media hyperbole serves a purpose, but some things are undeniably doing the most, as with the wave of entrepreneurship from the NUL Community that’s spreading country-wide. AYP Entrepreneurship Expo is an event dedicated to the NUL class of 2017/18 and the plan is to keep it rolling yearly.

INTRODUCING NUL’S SOILLESS MEDIUM

When Tebalo Sekorobele, the National University of Lesotho (NUL)’s Chemical Technologist, tested the physical and chemical properties of his horticultural growth medium, he was pleased with what he saw. His product did not only match the commercial growth medium, it was a lot better in other areas.

After a careful development of a growth medium aided by extensive literature studies, and many trials, Sekorobele was pleased to find that his medium could produce plants that matched commercial growth mediums in all aspects.

NUL'S SIGN LANGAUGE INTERPRETER APP GETS INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION

Here is an ambitious project by the National University of Lesotho (NUL) 4th Year Computer Science students; Lika Masoebe and Mokhutli Letsae. When a person speaks to you in sign language, the app will translate that sign language to your language so you understand. 

The project has captured the attention of the World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology which has consequently invited the NUL scientists to present it at the 20th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Soft Computing in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

A TALENTED NOVEL AUTHOR FROM THE NUL

This unusually talented novel author, Tumisang Letsie, is perhaps one of the finest writers in the area of creative writing to have come out of the National University of Lesotho (NUL). Listen to his story. 

In 2005, after completing his high school a year earlier, the author crossed the boundaries of the NUL to study Urban and Regional planning, which is where his writing journey began. He began his novel, The Aura of the Ancestors ‘Leseli la Naleli’ in 2008 after quitting from the university due to consecutive failures.
