Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Professor Amon Murwira yesterday said President Emmerson Mnangagwa is scheduled to meet vice chancellors, college principals, bursars, investors, bankers and student leaders today at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC).
He said the meeting is aimed at addressing infrastructure challenges faced by institutions of higher learning as well as challenges in accessing student loans. Said Murwira:
The meeting is set to make the infrastructure at universities, technical colleges and teachers colleges take off. We are meeting with local and international investors and banks to also discuss the line of student loans. It’s a meeting to secure investment into our institutions’ infrastructure development. Students are at the centre of the ministry, hence, we are doing this for them to have an environment conducive for learning and ensure that financial shortcomings do not become an obstacle to their education.
Murwira said Mnangagwa will officially open the meeting.
