CBZ Unveils $150 Million For Students’ Hostels

Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Permanent Secretary Professor Fanuel Tagwira told The Chronicle that Government has secured $150 million for the construction of students’ hostels at three local universities to ease accommodation challenges.

Tagwira said the $150 million was availed by CBZ. Said Tagwira:

What the Ministry is doing is that we have taken a totally new approach to the issue of student accommodation. We are now saying let industry come and partner with us on a Public Private Partnership (PPPs) basis to create student housing. And I’m glad that a number of industries have come forward. We have received a lot of support from CBZ which we have channelled to Gwanda, Marondera and Lupane universities ($50 million each). We are very much concerned about the fact that most of our students stay in communities they don’t know, we don’t know the conditions under which they are living. Many parents, we know are very concerned, they want their children to find a place to stay in campus and we are working hard to make sure that this happens.
