The Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) Vice Chancellor Professor Rungano Zvobgo has urged university students to remain focused in order to archive greatness in their life.
Addressing students attending Life Skills workshop at the university’s Mashava campus last week, Prof Zvobgo also encouraged participants to value their health and desist from pre-marital sex.
” You are here to learn so you must focus on your education. Avoid risky behavior so that you don’t get infected by HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. This university was established to improve your lives so you must take this opportunity to mold yourselves to become relevant in the society,” said Prof Zvobgo.
“You came here to study, get a degree, go back home and start a better life so beware of those male and female species which are looking for sex day and night,” he added.
Professor Zvobgo said students were supposed to take his advice seriously since he was giving them knowledge and information which is not found in their curriculum.
“These are the things which the curriculum will not teach you which are fundamental to your survival, so value them,” said Zvobgo.
GZU has been praised by villagers sounding the Mashava community for breathing life to the small mining town.
