LSU top brass moves

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Hazel Hweta

LU­PANE State Uni­ver­sity (LSU) has fi­nally re­lo­cated to its cam­pus in Lu­pane with the Vice Chan­cel­lor Pro­fes­sor Par­don Kuipa and Pro-Vice Chan­cel­lor Dr No­math­emba Ndi­weni hav­ing started work there last week.

LSU has been op­er­at­ing from rented premises dot­ted around Bu­l­awayo since in­cep­tion in 2005 while con­struc­tion of cam­pus fa­cil­i­ties in Lu­pane has been go­ing on since 2006.

Prof Kuipa and Dr Ndi­weni led an ad­vance team of staff in­clud­ing the Regis­trar, li­brar­ian and bur­sar as well as sup­port­ing staff to the uni­ver­sity last week on Mon­day.

LSU di­rec­tor of Mar­ket­ing and Public Re­la­tions Mr Zwelithini Dlamini told The Chron­i­cle that the new cam­pus was now fully op­er­a­tional de­spite a few stick­ing is­sues.

“The ma­jor devel­op­ment that we have achieved this year is that the VC and the ex­ec­u­tive ad­vanced par­ties have moved to start work in Lu­pane which is what we have been look­ing for­ward to all this time,” said Mr Dlamini.

“We have tem­po­rary power sup­ply con­nected to the hos­tels and war­den houses that will be oc­cu­pied by se­nior man­age­ment as we wait for per­ma­nent con­nec­tion to be done while they set­tle in.”

Mr Dlamini said stu­dents and lec­tur­ers would only re­lo­cate from Bu­l­awayo next month as some struc­tures are still to be com­pleted.
