Students from the University of Zimbabwe in Harare shut down the institution on Monday, singing and demanding that the 93-year-old President Mugabe resign with immediate effect.

According to reports, students are also demanding that the university rescind the degree which was awarded to Mugabe’s controversial wife, Grace, in 2014.

Mugabe, dubbed Gucci Grace, was awarded a PhD from the University of Zimbabwe’s Faculty of Social Studies Department of Sociology.

The students, according to a NewsDay report, demanded that the university Vice Chancellor, Levy Nyagura, provide an explanation of how Grace received a doctorate, claiming that she obtained the four-year degree after 3-months of studying.

Students have vowed not to write their examinations until Mugabe’s resignation.
