The Golden Jubilee celebrations will be held on 14 October this year, focusing on how the institution should play a leading role in farming activities.
The deputy chief executive officer of Farmers World Holdings, Mr. Thomas Nherera said the celebrations to mark the collegeâ€™s 50 years of existence are important as Chibero was the first agricultural training institution in the country and has trained more than 2 000 students since its inception in 1961.
â€œThe celebrations are important in terms of ensuring continued excellent services,â€ said Mr. Nherera.
Mr. Nherera said Chibero Agricultural College had also played an important role in facilitating the success of the land reform programme.
â€œThe college has been crucial in ensuring that Zimbabwe becomes a success on the land reform policy,â€ added Mr. Nherera.
Various stakeholders from the countryâ€™s institutions of higher learning, farming sector, government officials and the private industry are expected to attend the Golden Jubilee celebrations at the college.
