On June 11, the academic achievements of 712 graduates from 18 African countries were recognized as they garnered degrees and top honors at Africa University's 28th graduation ceremony.

The event, held at the main campus in Mutare, focused on the theme, “Celebrating 30 Years of Excellence and Leadership Transformation in Africa.” The class represented the following nations: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Eswatini, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. 

The Rev. Peter Mageto, vice chancellor and professor, congratulated the graduates and their families, applauding the discipline and determination that brought them to this point. He encouraged them to continue with the same spirit as they leave the university.

Mageto highlighted the university’s progress in research, particularly related to malaria, child rights and nursing. Of special note was AU’s first three graduates receiving Doctor of Philosophy in Public Health degrees: Chipo Chimamise, Tichaona Goto and Ronnie Matambo.
