Grace Mugabe skipped PhD processes

By Tendai Rupapa

Former First Lady Grace Mugabe began studies at the University of Zimbabwe for her Masters in Social Studies a year before her application for post graduate admission was submitted, processed and accepted, the court heard yesterday.

According to the prosecution, at all the relevant times, the registration process, application and the purported study by Mrs Mugabe was not known at the UZ’s Faculty of Social Studies.

Representing the prosecution, Messrs Tapiwa Godzi and Michael Chakandida submitted that suspended UZ Vice Chancellor Levi Nyagura, who is accused of illegally awarding Mrs Mugabe a PhD, presided over the whole processes that led to the conferment of the degree to the former First Lady.

Mr Godzi said there was evidence showing that the whole process was riddled with irregularities.

Nyagura on Tuesday through his lawyer, Advocate Sylvester Hashiti, filed an application for exception and quashing of an indictment on the basis that his hands were clean.

He said he was being wrongly charged, insisting that the latter’s husband, former president Robert Mugabe, who was the varsity’s chancellor, approved and conferred his wife with the PhD.

He added that in his application, Nyagura attached documents which contained self-incriminating evidence.

“The accused attached documents without applying proper mind to them because they contain incriminatory evidence,” he said.

“For instance, Grace Marufu made an application for post graduate admission on May 14, 2012 for MPhil Social Studies. On May 30, she was accepted and was to commence on March 1, 2012, what an inconsistency. This literally means that she was supposed to commence studies three months before her purported application and admission.

“Also supervision notes by one Mararike shows that Grace Marufu was already undertaking studies as at March 2011, a year before the application, admission and registration.”

Nyagura in his application argued that the proper and responsible persons have not been brought to court.

The prosecution responded to the submission saying: “The accused person presided over the whole process . . . he is also responsible for signing the degree certificates.

“Further, no blame can be attributed to the chancellor(s). The Chancellor of UZ as provided for in the Act is completely ceremonial with no executive responsibilities.

“By custom and practice, the Chancellor is not involved at any stage until the graduation ceremony where he makes a speech and caps graduates.

“Successful completion of a PHD requires multiple procedures to be followed and tasks to be achieved yet the Chancellor is involved in none of all these, not even signing the degree certificate itself.

“The charge is that the vice chancellor deliberately violated rules, regulations and practices of the University in awarding Grace Marufu a PhD which amounts to criminal abuse of office.

“He further falsely and fraudulently recommended to the Council and Chancellor the conferment of the PhD.”

Acting Chief Magistrate Mr Munamato Mutevedzi presided over the case.

He remanded the matter to April 9 for ruling. The Herald

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
