University of Zimbabwe Lecturers Disown Grace Mugabe’s Doctorate

Former First Lady Grace Mugabe faces a corruption probe following a formal complaint filed by lecturers at the University of Zimbabwe’s Sociology Department over the manner in which she attained her doctorate.

Mrs. Mugabe, who fell from grace when her attempts to succeed her husband Robert Mugabe were thwarted by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and then sacked Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa in November last year, may face corruption charges as all faculty members have distanced themselves from supervising her research.

Sources claim that staff members never handled Mrs. Mugabe’s research proposal as she only allegedly surfaced on graduation day when she was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy Degree on the same day former Vice President Joice Mujuru attained her doctorate.

Lecturers and students are complaining that the awarding of the doctorate to Mrs. Mugabe has undermined the status of the University of Zimbabwe.
