  1. Deal with all forms of corruption as well regardless of the status of the person involved in corrupt activities and this will help breathe life into our economy.

    • The press should follow up on this.. I smell a money making scam with bagfuls of kickbacks as the intended targets will be made to part with a King’s ransom to get registered. Just watch!

  2. That last line sounds personal. Just name the Zaoga-related colleges that were closed like you did with the Dangamvura one. Don’t discredit some which are operating legally.

    Yes, the government is slowly finding its bearings. We want standards and not a land of ‘do as you like’. Hands up! Kwasara tukoro twemudzimba utwu twakatanga tuchiitirwa maExtra lessons. Clean ’em up and take our education to former glory!

  3. i think it would be good to mention the schools in case we go there and register tisingazivi.

    Where can we get the full list.

  4. Why deregister so many of these colleges at once as if they were inspected in one day? Maybe someone has hatched a plan in which these colleges queue up for some underhand dealing and before anyone realises it, they’re all re-registered and the loot shared as quickly as possible among as few ‘shareholders’ as possible.

  5. This is a good move colleges such as CITMA is taking advantage and reaping off students.Teachers are not being paid students are not receiving decent tuition

  6. Why is CITMA still open then that college deserves to be locked and keys thrown away.No meaningful learning is taking place there.

  7. Can you please publish the full list of all deregistered colleges before we pay our fees and lose our hard earned money

  8. Ehe maita basa bt if u close them up make sure u pay the teachers well so that we can get proper education and make sure the teachers don’t go on strike
    And make us see no reason to re-establish those colleges tuu!!!!

  9. You will notice the reasons for closure may be related to non-payment of fees to the Ministry, Another money making grand plan, soon all these colleges would be seeking to regularise, not their standards but their payments.

  10. Senge macreche anyanya. Every corner creche yet the number of qualified ECD teachers in Harare is less than 100 according to the ministry of education. Watch out parents some teachers are house maids with no relevant qualifications. Especially the new creches.

  11. ACCA is a global board, the government fo Zim does not have jurisdiction over it…i understand only their office was closed and this does not have any adverse effect on its students whatsoever.

  13. Overzealous ness by some of these corrupt gvt officials leads to this. The Pvt sector is trying to alleviate the problem ye tertiary education, yet some Gvt officials are having sleepless nights shutting the colleges down… ID the ministers responsible a nd DO NOT vote for them come next elections… why not give the colleges timeto comply?
