30 grade 12 students from Mafeteng High School visit the hub with young curiosity. Their background in Agric and Food and Nutrition subjects gives them a zeal to ask brilliant questions that inspire their hosts. These are well taught future innovators that are inspired by seeing knowledge centres like the NUL Innovation Hub existing to inspire career paths and dreams.
The policy clearly explains how NUL hopes to reward and be rewarded by those involved in the development of its many innovations like the tiles shown below.
With these tiles, you can turn your home into a guest house. They are speciality tiles made at the NUL INNOVATION HUB by an NUL based company called Mafikeng Stones.

Kopano “Change Agent” Sekhoari is the brains behind the famous Urban Taxis that is taking the country by the storm. He started with just one car, but he is now running a fleet of more than 18 cars. He transports people far and wide in Lesotho and in the region. In the process, “Urban Taxis” is quickly becoming a household name, a force to reckon with.
Plus he happens to have been schooled at the feet of some Economics gurus at the National University of Lesotho (NUL). “I studied Economics not as a profession,” he revealed. “I studied it as a way of life.”
So you were kind’a disappointed with a lack of variety in Lesotho’s building materials? And, being a patient person, you were waiting for a moment when you could turn your garden into a paradise? And your home into a mansion?
The bricks in the form of cladding, building and paving stones by the National University of Lesotho (NUL) Innovation Hub are a breath of fresh air in a rather boring Lesotho’s building landscape. Due to the manufacturing techniques used, these bricks are stronger, more artistic and rich in variety and colour.
Warning! This soap is addictive! So use it at your own risk. Terms and conditions apply. The “addictive” soap is none other than Mohalalitoe (oa lithota). It is a new natural soap that is being produced by the National University of Lesotho (NUL) Innovation Hub. Since it is a natural soap, it is very gentle on your skin. And it leaves your skin fully moisturised.
(Find their soap at Unique Jewellery, NRH Mall Kiosk, near Ha Mafafa, Maseru. More places will be announced soon)
Preparing it is easy. You just add hot water and you eat. But that is not the big thing about this instant porridge.The big thing is that it comes packed with nutrition and a fruity taste—and it is made by three National University of Lesotho (NUL) nutrition graduates. “For six months,” said Joalane Mohale, “we poured our hearts and souls into the development of this product—until we got there.”
This product is now on sale. You can even buy and resell it. (Catch them here: +266 59888173).
The belittling of Lesotho for being "small" drives him nuts. That is why he, ntate Sets’abi Sets’abi, Senior Lecturer at the National University of Lesotho (NUL) , has started planting 1500 almond trees (they give out almond nuts) in his quest to make Lesotho a nutty country. Let's hear from the horse's mouth.
"Almost every academic article and research report that you read on Lesotho starts with the same line "Lesotho is a small mountainous country that is completely surrounded by the Republic of South Africa".
NUL SCIENTISTS JOIN AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION TO BUILD AFRICA’S AFFORDABLE, ENERGY-EFFICIENT AND GREEN HOUSE
The prestigious international competition is called Solar Decathlon Africa (http://solardecathlonafrica.com/). The battle will be on who will build the best energy efficient house, with a zing of innovation, in a few days in Morocco. And the National University of Lesotho (NUL) scientists led by Dr Moeketsi Mpholo are part of the competition.
Good news for innovative NUL students. Over and above the products it makes by itself, the National University of Lesotho (NUL) Innovation Hub will soon provide space for students to sell a variety of products which they have PRODUCED themselves. For instance, a student might be producing polish at small scale but be struggling to find a platform for selling it. NUL Innovation Hub will provide the space.
