A two-member delegation from Unki Mine comprising the Human Resources Manager, Mr Anthony Chadhliwa and Social Performance Manager, Ms Evelyn Mawimba visited Midlands State University’s Gweru Main Campus on the 18th of June 2021 where they toured the Graduate School of Business Leadership Library and Faculty of Law Library.
Following a donation of 795 volumes of books made to the University in 2019 and 2020 by the International Law Book Facility (ILBF) through Unki Mine’s corporate social responsibility initiative, the delegation sought to establish how the books were adding value to research, teaching and learning among members of the University community. The visit was also aimed at further strengthening cooperation between the mining house and the University.
In his remarks, MSU Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor Research and Academic Affairs, Professor Alois S. Chiromo said the books donated through Unki significantly contribute to imparting knowledge and developing competent human capital in line with Education 5.0. and national human capital development goals.
“The donations you have made are key to human capital development as indicated by Education 5.0. We will produce the graduate that you want, one that does not need retraining because the books you have donated will help to educate our students,” said Professor Chiromo.
Professor Chiromo further commended Unki for its scholarship programme, which has seen the mining house sponsor many MSU students over the years.
The visit ended with a tour of the MSU industrial Park.
Among those present during the event were MSU Pro Vice-Chancellor, Business, Innovation and Enterprise Development, Professor Grace Mugumbate, the Librarian, Ms Nyarai P Chibanda, Acting Deputy Librarian, Mr Ephraim Makeke and the Executive Dean of Law, Dr Gift Manyatera.
