“Zimbabwe Universities Produce Useless Graduates”: Acie Lumumba Sparks Storm

 


Social media personality, political activist and businessman Acie Lumumba has sparked a huge storm after he declared that Zimbabwean universities produce useless graduates.

The outspoken youthful businessman, full name William Gerald Lumumba Mutumanje, claimed that he had come to the conclusion after hiring more than 100 local graduates for different positions in his companies. He also went on to declare that according to his experiences, the best local graduates come from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST). He said that graduates from the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) need retraining. However, he was particularly scathing about graduates from the Midlands State University (MSU) whom he claimed are the worst. Lumumba claimed that MSU graduates seem to be trained in bedroom matters.

Writing on Twitter on Saturday, Lumumba said, 

After hiring 100+ graduates across multiple positions I can authoritatively say Zimbabwe produces useless graduates. Useless not as an attack, but as a concern, there is close to nothing you can use them for. NUST has the best crop, UZ you have to retrain, MSU mbodza dzega dzega!

MSU kunongodzidziswa chifodya cheshisha chiya ne zvemumagumbeze chete kuya. Dai yaitaura mibhedha iye Man gesturing ok. Lol

When someone questioned him on how he felt qualified to make such bold declarations, Lumumba claimed that his organisations have an annual turnover of at least $1 million.

 

 

Unsurprisingly, Lumumba’s declarations did not go down well with a lot of people, who took the businessman to task over the matter. Below are some of the reactions from social media,
