JOHANNESBURG – Former Lamontville Golden Arrows midfielder Njabulo Lucky Sithole has graduated with a Masters of Commerce in Maritime Studies from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN).
The soccer star who traded his football career for one in law, is exploring his love for maritime studies and the ocean economy in his job at Bidfreight Port Operations (Bidvest).
“When I was doing my LLB (Bachelor of Law), I dreamt of being a versatile lawyer and gaining as much experience in the corporate world as possible before I specialise. After a lot of advice and help from Professor Trevor Jones, my love for maritime studies and the maritime related industry grew,” said Sithole.
“Through the masters I gained understanding of international commerce in trade and business, as well as the legal complications involved in the day-to-day ocean economy. I am dealing with these legal issues at Bidfreight,” he added.
Though he no longer plays soccer full-time, Sithole is still passionate about the game and is involved in mentoring budding soccer players.
