GRADUATING students at Solusi University near Bulawayo have been urged to be patriotic and work towards economic development as envisioned by the second republic.
Solusi University held its 26th graduation ceremony this Sunday with 375 students being conferred with degrees from various fields of study.
Students who spoke to ZBC News after graduation, said they will use their entrepreneurial skills to help the country turn around the economy.
The guest of honor at the event, Mr Kudakwashe Tagwirei took the opportunity to urge the graduating students to be patriotic and work hard for the country.
“The country is implementing a rural transformation programme, for you graduates you need to take advantage of it and develop areas where you come from. We need to be patriotic and be like the people of Israel who are united no matter what,” he said.
With the government and its partners pledging support to the university’s adoption of implementing the Education 5.0 model, the onus is on the institute of higher learning to be productive.
“We are so grateful that we are receiving support from the President and other partners, we have to work hard as an institution to help the country,” said Dr Micah Choga, Solusi University’s chancellor.
The institution also received donations of tractors and implements from President Emmerson Mnangagwa as well as vehicles for staff from Sakunda Holdings.
