…Murwira urges Masvingo Poly graduates to be innovative
Masvingo Polytechnic last week held its 27th graduation and prize giving ceremony which saw 806 students graduating with diplomas and certificate in several disciplines.
Of the 806 students who graduated this year, females dominated at 408 students while male graduates followed at 398.
The graduating class of 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.
