Government Allocates $360 Million For Construction Of Gwanda State University

The government has allocated ZWL$360 million for the construction of the lecture block at Gwanda State University.

The Sunday News reports that construction works are already underway with blocks in Gwanda Town and Epoch mine in various stages of completion.

The construction of the Gwanda Town premises of the university, which was founded in 2012 started last year.

When the university started operations, it was based at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) and Epoch Mine (Filabusi) premises.

Speaking during a Question-and-Answer session at the National Assembly last Wednesday, Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Amon Murwira said construction on the students and lecture blocks was progressing smoothly. He said:

I will start by explaining that Gwanda State University has two campuses, one in Gwanda Town and another one at Epoch Mine. Construction of Gwanda State University has already started at the Epoch Mine campus.

To this end, under the 100-day cycle projects at Epoch Mine, three out of six students’ blocks are complete with the overall completion at 60 percent. Overall, 21 out of 26 blocks that accommodate 378 students have been completed while 10 out of 72 houses are complete and accommodate 40 staff members. The lecture block is at 15 percent completion whilst the engineering laboratory is at 40 percent completion, and renovations of the Jahunda Town offices are at 30 percent completion.

Prof Murwira added that more resources had been allocated for the construction of the lecturers’ block, among other projects.
