NetOne Board Member Accused Of Receiving Bogus Doctorate

One of the remaining four board members at State-owned Mobile Network Operator (MNO) NetOne was awarded a doctorate by an alleged bogus institution.

Dr Ranga Mavhunga was awarded the degree by Commonwealth University, with the institution accused of dishing out overnight doctorates to politicians like confetti.

Eminent Zimbabweans who have disapproved of doctorate offers by the University include Jacob Mutisi an ICT engineer, Nigel Mugami of 263chat and MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa.

Chamisa was reportedly asked to pay USD $3500 in exchange for the doctorate from the same institution.

Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) CEO Karikoga Kaseke reported having “earned” his doctorate from the Commonwealth University.

The NetOne director confirmed to Technomag that he indeed is a recipient of the degree, but dismissed speculation that he paid for the doctorate. He is quoted as saying:

I’m indeed a bonafide beneficiary. I studied a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) from the Commonwealth University, this is a qualification I indeed earned.

Mavhunga asserted that he studied for his Master’s Degree in South Africa where he achieved an MBA with Natal university in the year 2000.
