    – The Reformed Church University (RCU) held its inaugural graduation ceremony at Morgenster Mission on Friday where the first 157 students were capped.
    The degrees were conferred by the RCU Chancellor Reverend Dr Rangarirai Rutoro while the Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Development Professor Jonathan Moyo was the guest of honour.
    Graduands were drawn from the faculties of Arts, Theology and Religious Studies, Faculty of Education and Social Sciences and Faculty of Commerce.
    Six students graduated with first class degrees and these are Pardon Pedzisai, Lawrence Mavunzi , Luckson Mariba, Fadzanai Matongo, Cecilia Magwati and Azwifarwi Mbedzi.
    Speaking at the graduation ceremony RCU Vice-Chancellor Professor Wiseman Magwa congratulated the graduands for their academic achievement.
    He also explained the role of the Reformed Church in Zimbabwe in the promotion and expansion of education in the country.
    "The journey we have travelled so far goes into the history books as a story of dedication and commitment by the Reformed Church in Zimbabwe whose rich, expansive background in education, stretches for more than a century. The church's passion for education is seen in the establishment of several schools, hospitals and teachers ' colleges which have since become important pillars in human capital development in Zimbabwe," said Magwa.
    He also noted the importance of RCZ and RCU in transforming the lives of people living with disabilities through such special schools like Henry Murray School for the deaf and Copota School for the blind.
    "The formation of these schools was a significant milestone which marked a new chapter in the education of people living with disabilities. But this could not have been complete without the provision of relevant tertiary education to help turn the school leavers into employable professionals and entrepreneurs with ability to positively contribute to the development of the economy… One of our academic staff, Mr Kudazai Shava, who is visually impaired has already enrolled for his PhD studies at Cape Town University (RSA) with the support he received from the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology development," said Magwa.education news
