Harare, Zimbabwe. (News of The South) – As Operation Restore Order continues in the country, the government is leaving no stone unturned as it embarks on uprooting any forms and kind of corruption.

The operation has seen the University of Zimbabwe Vice Chancellor Professor Levi Nyagura being suspended on allegations of office abuse after the Vice Chancellor allegedly unprocedurally awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree to former First Lady Grace Mugabe.



This has also exposed the former President’s stance on corruption. He always preached about zero tolerance on corruption but failed to recognize this one coming straight under his nose. It showed that Mugabe was not sincere to effectively deal with graft in the country. Surprisingly he is the one who capped his wife on the graduation day.

Nyagura has since been replaced by Pro-Vice Chancellor Professor Pedzisai Mashiri who will act in his capacity act as the Vice Chancellor.

The council’s powers and authority are detailed in the University of Zimbabwe Act Chapter 25:16 Section 11 where council is the executive authority of the university.

According to a lecturer who preferred anonymity, the suspension is indefinite. It will only be lifted after all the court processes have been completed he said.

The University of Zimbabwe Council members said that there was a very heated debate which lasted for three hours on whether to suspend the Vice Chancellor or not said one of the
lecturers.

Other members said the council should be given ample time to carry out its own investigations to have an independent position because Professor Nyagura had done a lot of good work for the university.However, the majority said it will be subjudice as the
matter is still in the courts.

A council resolution has been taken that the Vice Chancellor be sent on an indefinite forced leave until the court cases are completed, as
they could not let him stay since most of the State witnesses are his subordinates and could jeopardise some investigation by tempering with evidence from other witnesses.

The University of Zimbabwe Council Chairman Ambassador Buzwani Mothobi could not give a statement yesterday over the matter. Efforts to get a comment from UZ Registrar Dr Noah Mutongoreni were fruitless.
