…Murwira urges Masvingo
Poly graduates to be innovative

students graduating with diplomas and certificate in several disciplines.

this year managed to earn a 73 percent pass rate.
Higher and Tertiary
Education Minister Professor Amon Murwira said the ministry’s aim was to
produce creative graduates who possess technical and innovative skills.
“Don’t blame anyone for
your poverty, focus on your talents. Focus on what you are good at and act
towards making your life and your country better,” said Murwira.
Murwira said students
should redesign their confidence and focus on being more advanced.
He lamented how the
majority of the country’s citizens remained desperately poor despite a high
literacy rate.
“God is not going to
answer your prayers if you don’t act,” said Murwira.
He said that colleges
should resort to teaching what really matters rather than focusing on theories
that do not help in improving society.
Masvingo Polytechnic
principal, Calisto Muzongondi congratulated all the graduates for their
accomplishments and wished them well in their chosen careers.
“Graduates, your
accomplishment is not only advantageous to you and your family members but also
to Masvingo Polytechnic and our lovely country Zimbabwe. You should be focused,
innovative and think ideas that will contribute to the country’s economic
growth,” said Muzongondi.
