His first stop was at the VUT site of delivery in Secunda for an early morning talk, and then an afternoon talk ending off at the VUT Ekurhuleni Campus. Prof Zide shared his strategic vision and direction for the university in the next few years of him holding office. Talking in front of a packed hall in Secunda, Prof Zide explained, in his speech, which can be found here, that he intends to serve all of VUT with dedication and distinction. He aims to involve and engage all staff and students – he talked of new structural and organisational development. A positive wave of change is imminent under his leadership.
