The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Ge­orge Maponga Masvingo Bu­reau

PRES­I­DENT Mnan­gagwa will to­day cap over 3 900 grad­uands dur­ing the Great Zim­babwe Uni­ver­sity’s 12th grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony.

It will be his first time to of­fi­ci­ate at the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of the in­sti­tu­tion as Chan­cel­lor.

Be­fore the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony, Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa would be in­stalled as the Great Zim­babwe Uni­ver­sity Chan­cel­lor.

He will then cap 3 916 grad­uands from five fac­ul­ties — namely the Gary Ma­gadzire School of Agri­cul­ture and Nat­u­ral Sciences, Mun­hu­mu­tapa School of Com­merce, Julius Ny­erere School of So­cial Sciences, Robert Mu­gabe School of Ed­u­ca­tion and Si­mon Muzenda School of Arts Cul­ture and Her­itage Stud­ies.

Great Zim­babwe Uni­ver­sity di­rec­tor of in­for­ma­tion and pub­lic re­la­tions, Mr An­der­son Chipatiso yes­ter­day said the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony would be held at the uni­ver­sity’s main cam­pus at Masvingo Teach­ers’ Col­lege.

“The grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony will be his­toric in the sense that Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa will cap grad­uands at our uni­ver­sity for the first time as GZU Chan­cel­lor,” he said.

“There will be an in­stal­la­tion cer­e­mony first where the Pres­i­dent will be in­stalled as the uni­ver­sity Chan­cel­lor.

“The num­ber of stu­dents who will grad­u­ate to­mor­row (to­day) which stands at 3 916 shows the growth of the uni­ver­sity over the years into one of the big­gest in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing in Zim­babwe.”

GZU has a stu­dent pop­u­la­tion of over 13 000.
