ZAOGA to build US$100 million university in Harare

gutiapostlesChief Pastor and founder of Assemblies of God Africa (ZAOGA) Ezekiel Guti has been awarded a licence to build a US$100 million university in the capital.

The money has already been raised by church members in all the branches throughout the country.

"We have received an application from Pastor Guti to build a university in Zimbabwe," an official from the Higher Education Council of Zimbabwe said in an interview.

"This means that we will, therefore, have about 15 universities in Zimbabwe. As you know some of them are however private entities run by churches, activist groups, while some are managed by financial institutions."

The official said the university would be known as the Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU) and would be built in Harare.

"The university has already been given an operating licence and it only remains to be constructed and open its doors to prospective students."

This is not the first time that a church has built a university in Zimbabwe.The Roman Catholic Church also has a facility where it offers various Arts programmes to students at discounted rates.The Seventh Day Adventist Church has the Solusi University just outside Bulawayo  while the United Methodist Church runs Africa University in Mutare.Radiovop

you guys u neva cease to amaze, its sad though how as human beings we neva appreciate especially us Africans. so here u re jus worried about his name, just the naming , the work behind does not affect you. do u know people are working days and nights no rest to build the university. it hurts me so bad because am one of the people who has partnered with the servant of God and do u know how much Mama Yuna Guti has paid for the Uni 1 000 000 USA dollars, all her kids they have finished university she is contributing for someone child who she doesnt even knoe and there u re ungrateful people u worry about the name. Imagine if God had entrusted you with so much money what difference will u have made awww lets say with the way u re thinking right now, add more HIV< AIDS casualities. So please if u have nothing to say juz zip it up and mutende Mwana wemumwe munhu, Look At Parirenyatwa check the history

Let the man do what he believes in. It is not the name that matters ,it is the idea and spirit behind it that is important. Already they have built a hospital which could mean they want to train their own medical staff.
I support the initiative. One inspired thought and the world has never been the same again. Thank you the man of God for just being able to mobilse scarce resources to build a learning instituition.

The idea is very noble and i am also a proud contributor but i do agree that the name ZEGU is not very apealling. I would suggest a plain Ezekiel Guti University. abb. E.G.U

I am surprised that some people feel that naming the University with the name Ezekiel Guti is wrong.These are people who do not know the man himself and have not done their research elsewhere.There are universities in America and UK that are named by their founders' names.There is absolutely nothing wrong with naming this University Ezekiel Guti as an act of honour.
