    MASVINGO - Fifteen people have been presented with sign language certificates after attendingweek long sign language lectures at Zimbabwe Open University (ZOU) Masvingo Region branch Campus.
    The certificates were presented by the institution’s Masvingo Region Director Professor Raphinos Chibaya on Saturday at a colourful graduation ceremony held at the ZOU campus in Rhodene.
    The program was sponsored by ZOU in a bid to limit communication barriers affecting the disabled and less privileged in society.
    Speaking at the event, Professor Chibaya said ZOU is dedicated to educating the nation and has since begun opening district offices in highly populated and distant towns as Chiredzi.
    “We are the university of choice. We have produced more empowered graduates than any other university. We have since opened a branch in Chiredzi because of the distance and population. We do not want to inconvenience our students,” said Chibaya.
    The graduates were drawn from different social strata’s in society and one of the outstanding students was Midwin Sorofa who is the head at Matova Primary after Gokomere.
    “We are grateful to have been awarded this opportunity. ZOU has defied all barriers to bring us this program and we hope you will extent it to other stakeholders,” said Sorofa.
    The graduates are Eneres Chifombo, Emmanuel Mtokoma, Agnes Marivo, Morgan Ngwaru, Sheila Zvaravashe, Monica Mutingwende, Elinah Fatini, Ramson Chirongoma, Tendai Muza, Olivia Matambo, Richard Chingovo, Beatrice Ngilazi, Midwin Sorofa, Rosemary Chikanga and Thokozile Marimi.
    The event was attended by the institution’s Students Advisor and Quality Assurance Coordinator Professor Patrick Chadamoyo and Professor Paul Mupa respectively who encouraged the graduates to be agents of transformation in society.
    “You have to light the world. It is these small steps you are taking that matter. You should go and encourage others to partake in such programs which will better our communities,” said Prof Chadamoyo.
