Midlands State University (MSU)’s public relations director Mrs Mirirai Mawere told The Chronicle that they are 95% done with constructing a 1700 sitter chapel that has so far cost approximately $1.1 million.
The chapel is not yet complete, only left with final touches. We are working on completing the roofing, furnishing and painting. There is still some work to be done before commissioning it. We will be using the chapel to conduct church services such as beginning and closing of the semester services, mid-week and memorial services for all university faith-based functions such as gospel concerts, conferences, Christian union functions. It can also be hired out to faith-based organisations for their national conferences.
A source within MSU’s Accounts Department told The Chronicle that the institution has so far spent $1,1 million from its coffers for the construction of the chapel and will require an additional $100 000 for its completion.
