The government has been blasted over plans to scrap what it considers useless degrees.
State Media reports over the weekend revealed that the government through the Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education (ZIMCHE) will soon confine some degrees at state universities to the dustbin.
In responses to the reports, Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) western region chairperson Ambrose Sibindi said they could challenge the legality of such a move. Said Sibindi:
The government approved these degrees and citizens invested money on the same, as they paid huge sums of money on fees. Some people are already in employment having used those degrees, the question is what is their fate now? They are in danger of losing their jobs or losing chances of promotion.
