MSU graduation to go ahead as planned

    The Midlands State University (MSU) will proceed with its graduation ceremony slated for Friday, the 24th of November, in Gweru despite reports claiming it had postponed it.

    The university was forced to issue a notice reassuring stakeholders of its program after a report in the NewsDay claimed the university had postponed the ceremony.

    The report, carried in the NewsDay cited the political environment in the country as probable cause for the shift in dates.

    The university denied this in a notice carried on its website.

    “Midlands State University (MSU) has noted with concern a false statement circulating on social media and an article published in the Newsday of 21 November  to the effect that the 2017 Midlands State University graduation ceremony scheduled for Friday, the 24th of November has been postponed.

    We wish to advise our valued stakeholders that the graduation ceremony is still on the 24th of November 2017 as previously advised. If ever there is going to be any change to the graduation date, it shall be communicated through the MSU official communication channels.” read the statement.

    Officials at the university who spoke to Khuluma denied that a notice was ever put up announcing a shift in graduation dates.

    “Staff were shocked by the report. The President officiated the ZOU ceremony despite what is happening, what would make MSU any different” wrote one staff member.

    Embattled President, Robert Mugabe, is expected to officiate the ceremony as he is the chancellor of all state universities.
