Former Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace Mugabe is to be investigated by the anti-corruption commission over ‘fake’ doctorate degree.
The academics from the University of Zimbabwe’s sociology department say they were “shocked” when Grace Mugabe emerged among the doctoral candidates in 2014.
They have, however, petitioned the anti-corruption commission to investigate the “suspicious” way in which former first lady awarded a doctorate four years ago.
“This was a shock to many members of the department as most members never (saw) or heard about the proposal, progress reports, thesis examiners and outcome of such a study by the candidate,” reads part of the petition, quoted by the private Zimbabwe Independent.
“The awarding of the degree has therefore not gone through processes that other candidates are subjected to which makes the awarding of the degree very suspicious,” the petition adds.
