MUT congratulates Ugu District for its sterling performance in the 2022 grade 12 examination results. The district beat all other 11 districts in KwaZulu-Natal, keeping its position in the top, three years in a row. Ugu District obtained an 87.2% pass, earning an exclusive invitation from Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, during the 2022 National Examination results announcement in Pretoria last night. The district was represented by Mfundi Sibiya, its director.
Sibiya’s sterling leadership has produced a strong and passionate team of managers, coordinators, advisors, principals, and educators who all put hands on deck from day one to ensure that learners are fully prepared to face the ultimate examination.
In the 2022 grade 12 examination, the district recorded a sterling improvement of more than 7% from the 2021 results. Such excellent results by the district contributed immensely to the overall provincial performance of 83% which put KwaZulu-Natal in the third position nationally.
Ugu district has been an outstanding partner to MUT’s efforts of recruiting and providing support to the schools. This bond became more personal when MUT recruited Professor Nokuthula Sibiya, the DVC: Research Innovation and Engagement. Professor Sibiya is the wife of Mfundo Sibiya. Indeed, alongside every successful man, there is a strong woman, and the woman is his wife.
The Senior Director of MUT’s Department of Marketing and Communications, Mbali Mkhize, said the district’s efforts were more than pleasing.
“My department is very involved with all the districts in the province. The consistency shown by Ugu District is more than pleasing. Last year this district performed very well, achieving 80.4%. Great appreciation to Professor Nokuthula Sibiya for her support and understanding of the challenging role and the sacrifices that Mr Sibiya makes while dedicating his time to the district to produce excellent results. It is clear to us that the Sibiya family are committed to empowering the community through education. MUT is more than ready to work with well-performing districts like Ugu. Well done, again, Mr Sibiya,” said Mkhize.
Mkhize also thanked the parents, and educators for working with the district in creating a conducive learning environment.
