As the nation of Botswana gears towards the final moments of the 50th Independence celebrations, Gaborone University College of Law and Professional Studies (GUC) on Friday took to the streets of Gaborone in the pre—independence celebrations. They started off with a march across the town from Main Mall through BBS mall ending at the university’s newly opened branch at Broadhurst Industrial.
GUC Managing Director Dr Anthony Joseph said this was the institution’s way of activating the mood for the ultimate golden Jubilee independence celebrations that will be held on September 30, 2016. Dr Anthony said Botswana has achieved lot over the years and this warrants celebration.
He, however, said more is still to be achieved in order to keep the country going forward. As Botswana will be celebrating 50 years of freedom, GUC on the other hand has everything to celebrate as well. The institution has come a long way over the past 10 years of its existence to this point. The institution has over 200 lecturers today and from their first graduation of 19 graduates they now have over 1000 graduates. Senior Assistant Commissioner Mathews Letsholo commended the leadership of GUC for the role it plays in the development of the nation. Letsholo, who was a guest speaker, said the institution has indeed grown in leaps and bounds and produced quality graduates that can compete regionally and internationally.
