The graduate has the Eastern Cape Department of Public Works to thank for that. According to a post on the department's Facebook page, they funded Moko's tuition for the entire duration of her studies.
“The department of Public Works is highly efficient and responsive to students' needs. For the four years that I have been a bursary-holder, I never had to worry about the financial factors of the University. I was able to focus on my studies. I am highly grateful to the team at Human-Resources Development,” said Moko.
With her degree in the bag, Moko is now a candidate professional in the Properties section.
“I am a young black woman, ambitious to bring change to the narrative of the Property Sector being populated by a certain calibre: usually wealthy and of the opposite (gender)” said Moko.
Moko is one of several students who benefited from the Mxolisi Majombozi bursary - a scheme that targets young people between the ages of 18 and 35.
