  1. There should be more appropriate awards than PhDs. People like Michael Jackson, Steve Jobs and Muhammad Ali would all have been conferred with doctorates.

    1. Even Bill Gates na Strive Masiyiwa. What is this with Zimbabwean Universities dishing out PHDs. I don’t dispute the two woman have broke new grounds but like you said some awards are much better. PHD harisisina punch now in Zimbabwe

  2. Pamwe imari hameno…mbuya idzi dzakabatana kunge pasi!

  3. Nicely put, Many thanks!
