Govt To Build Four New Universities

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.

  4. Njengoba uChamisa wayesithi iZimbabwe ayisoke idevelop as long as ED rules😂😂lokhu kuyini manje#phambili ngoED

  5. I see no reason of u guys not voting for ED wen hez doing all this,this is the development we are talking abt#Ed panyanga

  6. the opening of those universities is going to create more employment opportunities and lowering pressure on universities due to one uni accommodating more pipo atleast zim is now open for business for sure i assure you that by 2020 we will be talking about these great achievements zanu pf mu office

  8. shuwiro yangu ndeyekuti dai ma elections atoregedza kuitwa nekuti president tinavo kudhara plus titori bho ne gvt yacho

  9. Commendable! But, I think Zimbabwe now needs more lower and middle-range skills than high level ones. We therefore now need more vocational traning centres and polytechnics than universities. You should ask yourselves why in Rhodesia, Africans were allowed to go to the University of Rhodesia, but not to polytechnics. The economy rides on lower and middle-range skills.
