Nizaam Peck, a lecturer in the Tourism Department, will soon be flying to Bulgaria to learn about global threats and counter-strategies.

Peck is a reserve member of the South African National Defense Force and will be attending the annual Summer Congress organized by the Inter-allied Confederation of Reserve Officers.

A junior officer with the rank of Second Lieutenant, he is looking forward to attending the workshop for young reserve officers, which is the congress’ key feature.

The confederation is composed of Reserve Officers organisations from NATO and associated countries.

Peck was selected as one of four candidates who will be representing South Africa at the congress in Sofia, Bulgaria, in August.

“It will be a great opportunity for young South African officers to network with other young officers from NATO nations and receive exposure to strategic planning regarding present day global threats,” he says.

He made it through a rigorous selection process which pitted junior officers from around the country against each other in interviews, presentations and report writing.
