Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) last week got a shot in the arm when Sylvester Maunganidze donated his farm in Sikato to the institution for the construction of student residential village as the university moves to speed up the establishment of its main campus near the Great Zimbabwe monuments.
GZU hosted a fundraising dinner last week which was graced by Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa where the business community and various stakeholders dipped deep into their pockets to support the construction of a convocational hall and other ancillary infrastructure.
As his donation, Maunganidze said he was giving his farm which he bought using his hard-earned money.
He said he was giving the farm to GZU so that they can erect a student residential village and name the streets after the Masvingo heroes and heroines.
"Some people got land through the land reform programme but I bought Sikato Farm. Now I am giving it to GZU so that they can erect a student residential village.
"The streets in that village should be named after our Masvingo heroes and heroines, the likes of the late Vice President Simon Muzenda, Eddison Zvobgo, Shuvai Mahofa, Maud Muzenda among others," said Maunganidze.local
