Master of Education student Mr Luthando Molefe is a finalist in the Junior Chamber International (JCI) SA Ten Outstanding Young Persons (JCI SA TOYP) for 2021 in the category Academic Leadership and/or Accomplishment.

The JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (JCI TOYP) programme acknowledges young people who excel in their chosen fields and display the best attributes of the world’s young high performers in their areas of influence. 

Molefe was selected for his outstanding and exceptional work in academic excellence, community outreach and leadership in the various roles he performs.

After a rigorous process of identifying outstanding young persons around the country, Molefe was selected as a finalist.

The final preliminary round of the judging process was performed by a panel of high note judges who included past TOYP winners, external partners and JCI SA executives. The combined scores of the two rounds of judging were then used to determine the Top 21.

‘I am thrilled to be a finalist and I am confident I stand a very good chance of being named as one of the Top10 in the country. This again, is testimony that my outstanding work at UKZN and externally really does not go unnoticed,’ he said.

JCI SA 2021 President Ms Silindile Mbaza congratulated Molefe on his achievement. ‘We are proud of the work you have done and continue to do, and know that the most impact is seen in the communities and the people affected by your tremendous work,’ said Mbaza.

Ten Outstanding Young Persons of South Africa will be acknowledged in a prestigious Gala Dinner to be held at the Durban International Convention Centre in November.

This is not the end of the road for him as he still needs to make it in the TOP 10 Outstanding Young Persons in South Africa for 2021 by JCI SA. Let us show him support by voting for him here:

Voting ends at midnight 31 July 2021.
