Lasec joins the Gandhi legacy

In 1893, Mahatma Gandhi was thrown off the first-class compartment of a train at Pietermaritzburg Station because he was of colour, and it is readily acknowledge that this event was the turning point that transformed him from attorney to liberator and marked the dawn of a new era in the liberation struggle…

Ladysmith Secondary (Lasec) very proudly wrote its own chapter in the Mahatma Gandhi legacy when Grade 12 learner Thabang Mbhele was placed first in the ‘Mahatma Gandhi 125 Years Centenary Celebrations’ Essay Writing Competition.

To add to his achievements, Thabang had the unique privilege of reading his award-winning essay to a gathering of international celebrities at a special high-profile event which was held at the Pietermaritzburg Railway Station on Thursday (June 7) and beamed to two billion viewers worldwide.

For his effort and for identifying with the event that changed Gandhi’s life, Thabang was awarded the cherry-on-the top of all accolades – a return trip for two to Mumbai, India.

Jai Hind, Thabang – the Lasec family congratulates you on your sterling performance!
