Mugabe expected to appoint university councils

In an interview with The Herald last week, Higher Education Deputy Minister Dr Godfrey Gandawa said that President Robert Mugabe is expected to approve and appoint university councils for the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Marondera University of Agricultural Sciences, Manicaland University of Applied Sciences and Gwanda State University, this month.

Gandawa said once the university councils were appointed, Manicaland University of Applied Sciences will become a stand-alone university that is not affiliated to Midlands State University. Said Gandawa:

Three weeks ago, we submitted our request for the appointment of university councils for National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Marondera University of Agricultural Science, Manicaland University and Gwanda State University. We are hoping that the President will appoint the councils this month. Once the university councils are appointed, this means that Manicaland University of Applied Sciences will become a stand-alone university. This university will also have programmes on Forestry and Mining Engineering. We are expecting the President to approve the university councils this month.
