The aim is to prepare myself for existing the job market at my current employment and once I’m done, to go back , to the community when going back to my birthplace, serving communities in around the greater Koroo and surrounding areas.

    that guidence.

    Your assisstance to guide me will be highly appreciated.

  4. Good day

    My name is Robyn Peterson

    Mr Axolile Notywala and Mr Bonga Zamisa were guest lecturers and spoke about the Mlungwana case at my University.
    Giving back to the community is something that I’ve always been passionate about and I’ve never been more keen on with an organisation such as the SCJ that resonates with that very passion.

    I will be graduating with my LLB degree in March/April 2021, and would like to know if there are any vacancies, such as internships that I can apply for?
