“When complete, the college will go a long way in relieving pressure on Ascot High School as well as Mambo High School, which are both currently overcrowded. The project is in line with my vision of multiplying schools in Gweru urban so that access to education is heightened, ” Dube said.
“So far, in my capacity as Gweru Urban MP, I have facilitated the engagement with City of Gweru to increase the land allocation for the project. I will use part of the Constituency Development Fund in the construction of the college. In addition, I am currently engaging other corporate and development partners to assist with more funding.”
Dube is also facilitating renovations of a laboratory at Ascot High School to enable science students use it in the Zimbabwe School Examination Council examinations due in the third term.
Currently, Gweru only has one private college – Midlands Christian College and the new institution is set to become the second.
Last week, Mkoba MP Amos Chibaya also announced the investment of about $23 000 in the refurbishment of school infrastructure in his constituency.
