From mascot to graduate

Letlhogonolo Thintha, the first-ever mascot of the Sol Plaatje University (SPU) in South Africa, recently sat down with the Sunday World newspaper for an exclusive interview. Thintha made his debut as “Gemmie” at the launch of the SPU Sport Brand in May 2022. Since then, he has become a beloved figure on campus, representing the university at various events and activities.

Thintha graduated with a Diploma in Retail Business Management  – it was at SPU’s 8th Graduation Ceremony that his identity as mascot was revealed – and now serves as the Deputy Secretary General of the Student Representative Council (SRC).
