Vice President Joice Mujuru has completed a doctorate degree with the Women’s University in Africa.
Olivia Muchena, the minister of Higher Education, made the announcement in Harare on Monday during the launch of the ZimAsset training programme for members of Parliament. Mujuru, who left Howard Institute while doing Form 2 in 1973 to join the liberation struggle, had to study from home because of her commitments as a Cabinet minister.
A holder of a Masters Degree in Strategic Management, Mujuru will be graduating with a PhD next week.
"We have heard about how the president worked hard under difficult circumstances to attain several degrees but we also have another example of a hard worker in vice president Joice Mujuru who will be graduating with a PhD next week," Muchena said.
She said Mujuru had managed to achieve that feat notwithstanding the fact that she had a busy schedule in her various capacities in government and the Zanu PF party as well as being a mother.
