Telecoms mogul Strive Masiyiwa’s Higherlife Foundation has temporarily delayed the announcement of the 2020 recipients of the Joshua Nkomo scholarships.
In a statement on Friday, Higherlife Foundation said the decision to delay the announcement was necessitated by the closure of universities due to the coronavirus pandemic. The statement read:
Please note that due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of universities, we have temporarily delayed the announcement of our best candidates and recipients of the 2020 Scholarship program.
We, however, urge all applicants to stay tuned to our website and the media for further updates and publication of the results.
