Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Professor Jonathan Moyo has said that government is working on setting up the Robert Mugabe University. The university will be owned by the Robert Mugabe Foundation and the University of Zimbabwe has been chosen to incubate it.
By the way, there is quite some discussion to set up a Robert Mugabe University and it has reached a level where we have approached the University of Zimbabwe. The University of Zimbabwe has been asked to incubate it but it is going to be a university owned by the Robert Mugabe Foundation soon to be established in order to give it the latitude it needs
It’s intended to be a smart university, technology you know, high-end skills development, hardware engineering, software engineering but anyway what it is going to do and so forth is an open issue that is yet to be done
…We should have a university named after President Mugabe, although we have a Robert Mugabe School of Intelligence. This is not enough, we should honour our founding father, President Mugabe, for his contribution to this nation.
