Africa University in Mutare, an institution which was born to advance the pan-Africanism ideology and investing in Africa’s future has become a centre of a united Africa.

Since its inception as the only private university in 1992 in Zimbabwe, Africa University has become a symbol of a united Africa with students drawn from more than twenty six african countries.

As Zimbabwe joins the rest of the continent to commemorate Africa Day, students at the university have been entrusted to grasp the vision of the founding fathers of pan-Africanism.

University director for information and public affairs, Tsitsi Tsvakwi Kanonge said the institution of higher learning takes pride to be the centre of pan-Africanism and will consistently strive to make meaningful contribution to the development of Africa through moulding competent future African leaders.

The Minister of State for Mutare Provincial Affairs, Cde Mandi Chimene called upon all African countries to invest in the development of Africa University in order to strengthen the pan-Africanism ideology.

This year’s Africa Day commemorations running under the theme, “Harnessing the Demographic Dividend Through Investment in Youths” comes at a time when the continent is focusing on achieving agenda 2063.
