Zimbabwe University VC Arrested Over Award of ‘Ph.D To Grace Mugabe
A leading university lecturer in Zimbabwe was on Friday arrested by anti-corruption investigators over a controversial doctorate awarded to country’s former first lady Grace Mugabe.
The arrest of Levi Nyagura, the vice chancellor of the University of Zimbabwe came following an investigation by the commission into the PhD.
It’s alleged that Grace Mugabe who graduated with a Doctor of Philosophy degree in 2014 was awarded the degree by the university after just months of study.
Last year, academics from Zimbabwe University petitioned to have her doctorate nullified saying proper procedures were not followed in the award.
The controversial award of doctorate, which is now the subject of a fraud investigation, was posted online last month, four years later she was awarded.
