Harare – Yesterday the Minister of High and Tertiary Education Professor Amon Murwira confirmed that his ministry had approved proposed fees by State Universities.

The minimum payment will be as much as ZW$5000 for average medical faculty students , ZW$4000 for those in the engineering and ZW$3500 for humanities and social studies.

However the minister has guaranteed the provision of Student Loans in tertiary institutions which were last issued back in 1997. This comes after an average civil servant earns as much as ZW$1000 per month.
