Construction Of ED Mnangagwa Law School Set To Be Completed Early 20231 year ago
Named after President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is a lawyer by profession, the two-floor building will include a library as well as a Moot court.
The Kwekwe campus will have the Law School and other faculties including Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Studies.
It will also comprise lecture rooms, moot courts, library, hostels, dining, clinic, and staff quarters amongst others.
Speaking after a tour of the project on Tuesday, the campus director, Mr Richard Dube, said construction works started on 3 May 2022. He spoke to The Herald:
We are grateful to the Government, Kwekwe City Council, and the University for the support they give us. Material is coming in timeously and if it continues like this, we are assured that this building will be completed by early next year.
We have employed 239 workers and 107 of them are women.
I am glad that most of our workers are on-site, we have managed to do landfilling on the better part and brickworks have started at most sections of our structure. With the pace at which we are moving and with the material available, by early 2023, we will be done.
Executive Dean Faculty of Law at MSU, Dr Gift Manyatera, said when completed, the campus is expected to become one of the best in the region.
Kwekwe District Development Co-ordinator Mr Fortune Mpungu said the university will bring development to Kwekwe as more supporting infrastructure like shopping malls and houses to accommodate the students will have to be constructed.
Kwekwe Town Clerk, Dr Lucia Mnkandla, said the project will attract a lot of investors into the city.
