University Moves To Displace A Marondera School

1 August 2021

About 300 pupils at a Marondera school are likely to be stranded when schools re-open as the Marondera University of Agriculture Science and Technology (MuASt) intends to build its campus at the school.

A few months ago, university security officials locked out teachers from Chivese Primary School until the government intervened.

The Standard was told that a meeting was held in Marondera where the varsity insisted the school was built on its land.

An anonymous official from the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education told the Standard that there was a deadlock. Said the official:

During the meeting, it came out that there is a wrangle between Marondera Municipality and Marondera Rural District Council as to who owns the land.

Efforts to get a comment from Mashonaland East provincial education director Annatoria Ncube were fruitless as her mobile phone was not being answered.
