Activists ridicule plan for Robert Mugabe University

Activists in Zimbabwe have ridiculed plans to build a Robert Mugabe University, adding that naming an educational institution after the veteran leader would be "palpably unfair and a monument of Zimbabwean injustice", reports News24.

According to New Zimbabwe.com, Great Zimbabwe University lecturer and Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe President Takavafira Zhou said Mugabe did not deserve any more appreciation than he already had. He added that the nonagenarian was associated with tyranny, dictatorship, cronyism and economic decay.

These and other critical comments come a week after reports said that authorities in the southern African country had begun a process of “setting up" the new institution, which was being billed as a "smart" university, likely to specialise in engineering. The flagship University of Zimbabwe was reportedly going to play a part in the establishment of the new institution.
