Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Amon Murwira has said that the government has secured funding from international and local investors to build four new universities. According to Murwira, all that remains now is Cabinet approval for the projects. Speaking to the Sunday Mail, Murwira said,
Cabinet has approved a list of investors who will start work on (Pan-African Institutes of Science and Technology) Pamust, Marondera, Gwanda and Manicaland universities. We are in detailed discussions with them … the final deals will be signed by the second week of July.
I have drafted some names(for the Pamust Council ); I will forward them to Cabinet for approval by the President. When he gives me the green light, we will appoint them formally. They are 10 — we are avoiding having a bloated council.
The investors will get a share of the fees which will be paid.
