Professor Claude Mararike is an academic and lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe. He is mostly known for his appearance in ZBC TV talk show Zvavanhu as a guest.
In February 2018 it was reported that Mararike was being investigated by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) in the case involving the awarding of a PhD degree to former first lady Grace Mugabe by the UZ's Faculty of Social Studies Department of Sociology in 2014. Vice Chancellor Levi Nyagura was eventually arrested and tried for abuse of office. Nyagura eventually resigned from the position of Vice Chancellor of the UZ in March 2019.
