Mahikeng - "The rectorate of the Potchefstroom Campus of the University of Northwest and the United Kingdoms of Africa have reached an agreement with regard to the deployment of the NWU's training enterprises in various African countries.

Fields such as Law, Nursing, Theology, Policing, Education and various short courses have already been identified.

The Rector of the NWU Potchefstroom Campus, Professor Herman van Schalkwyk, together with his vice-rectors, Prof Fika Janse van Rensburg and Rantoa Letšosa, met with the king of the United Kingdoms of Africa (UKA), King Zie Jean Gervais in Mossel Bay to launch this co-operation agreement.

King Zie is the permanent secretary general of the Forum of Sovereign and Traditional Leaders in Africa and based in the Ivory Coast.

The UKA has a great deal of influence at various levels of government all over Africa, and regards the promotion of education, development of the youth and skills development as their responsibility and priority.

According to Van Schalkwyk, the intended agreement involves that the NWU will now be the UKA's tertiary arm with regard to teaching-learning programmes (short courses and degree programmes), research programmes (including masters and doctoral programmes) and community engagement by means of the application of expertise.

"The focus will initially be on the royal houses of Africa. The NWU's technology with regard to open distance education programmes will be deployed at various royal quarters in the relevant regions," said Van Schalkwyk.

King Zie indicated that the UKA does not want to function in opposition to the political structures of Africa, but rather be an accompanying entity alongside the government structures to be of service in the development and rebuilding of the African continent."
