A programme to raise US$20 million for the University of Zimbabwe has been launched in Harare. Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara announced yesterday the beginning of various activities to raise part of the US$70m required by UZ. Prof Mutambara explained: "These funds will go towards meeting part of the UZ's US$70m requirement for capital projects, which are outlined in the UZ's fundraising handbook. UZ Vice-Chancellor Levi Nyagura welcomed the move saying the "mother of all universities" had fallen on hard times and needed to be helped to fulfil its mandate to churn out human capital.
