A Puppet in Parliament: Comedy for a good cause

On the 8th May 2015 Youth Lab joined forced with comedian Condrad Koch and political puppet Chester Missing to raise funds for to contribute to the education of two students from Wits University. In a night filled with South Africanisms, satire and even some song and dance Chester Missing and fellow stellar comedians Lihle Msimang, Alfred Adriaan and host Mojak Lehoko gave the audience at the Wits Great Hall much to laugh about. Those jokes helped us raise to contribute towards Mukwevho Livhuwani and Rofhiwa Tshikovhi who are currently enrolled at the University of the Witwatersrand in Mechanical Engineering and Bachelors of Science, respectively.

We’re proud to say that we have been part of Mukwevho and Rofhiwa’s journey. In 2012 Youth Lab assisted Matseliso Secondary School situated in Meadowlands Soweto, in developing their school library, aimed at pooling the resources they had to maximize the learner’s success rate in the build up to their matric year. Mukwevho and Rofihiwa are matriculants from Matseliso Secondary School and thanks to the comedians who did this show at no cost and the Naledi Education Trust sponsorship we were able to give each student R10 000 toward their education in 2015.

We thank everyone for coming to this event. A shoutout of grateful to friends of Youth Lab like Condrad Koch, Lihle Msimang, Alfred Adriaan, Mojak Lehoko who gave their time to make this a reality and all the amazing faces in the audience who made this night a possibility and a success.
