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.
Exams at the University of Zimbabwe are postponed until the students’ demands are met.
