President Emmerson Mnangagwa has assured Zimbabwean students under bilateral scholarship in Russia that their stipend arrears amounting to about US$600 000 will be cleared in the next three months at US$200 000 starting this January.

This came out during a brief meeting the President held with representatives of students in Moscow this afternoon.

The meeting noted that there was need to regularise issues that arose when the Department of Government Scholarships was transferred to the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Develoipment.
