Zimbabwe government has begun a process of setting up the Robert Mugabe University with the University of Zimbabwe expected to help in the establishment, the Herald reports.
The University will be built in honour of President Mugabe’s contribution to the education sector in the country.
The specialised Skills University will be owned by the Robert Mugabe Foundation which would be established in due course, the report says.
The mandate of the Robert Mugabe University is still under consideration.
Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo said that the University intends to be a ‘SMART’ University focusing on high-end skills development, hardware engineering, software engineering and others.
Prof Moyo said just like any other African country, Zimbabwe needed to have a University named after President Mugabe.
“We should have a university named after President Mugabe, although we have a Robert Mugabe School Of Intelligence. This is not enough, we should honour our founding father, President Mugabe, for his contribution to this nation.” the report quotes Moyo say.
He compared other countries such as South Africa having a Nelson Mandela University, Kenyatta University and Moi University from Kenya, stating that the country needs a successful university signifying the country’s exceptional leadership.
