President Robert Mugabe has capped 3445 graduates at the Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) as the university held its 11th graduation ceremony in Masvingo.

The graduates were drawn from the faculties of arts, religious studies, sociology, education and media and cultural studies.
Established in 2002, the university now boasts of a student population of over 14 000.

In his address, GZU Vice Chancellor, Professor Rungano Zvobgo highlighted that the university has begun constructing a medical school, whose first class is expected to enroll by August 2018 under the guidance of the University of Zimbabwe.

The move is in response to a directive for all universities to establish faculties of medicine, technology, engineering and culture and heritage studies.

GZU is currently operating from various centres in Masvingo, with plans underway to construct a permanent site at Nemamwa, close to the Great Zimbabwe monuments. Professor Zvobgo also revealed that the university has embarked on a vigorous fundraising campaign for the construction of the university.

The newly capped graduates expressed their eagerness to contribute to the development of the nation.
