President Mnangagwa has today capped 2 436 graduates with several degrees from different disciplines at a colourful ceremony held at Chinhoyi University of Technology during the institution’s 17th graduation ceremony.
The President, who is also the Chancellor of the university, conferred celebrated farmer, Mr Tinashe Ziki with an honorary Doctor of Philosophy in Agricultural Engineering and Technology following his outstanding farming prowess at his farm in Makonde, Mashonaland West province.
Graduants were capped both physically and virtually consistent with the desire to observe the Covid-19 pandemic containment measures.
President Mnangagwa later commissioned the CUT’s milking parlour at the university’s farm where there is a value addition and beneficiation project of dairy products consistent with National Development Strategy 1.
The products are drawn from its cattle breeding project where the institution is rearing more than 100 cattle.
