Investigations by our friends at Pindula News suggest that the University of Zimbabwe has reviewed its tertiary fees to more than $5 000 and Chinhoyi will be asking at least some students to pay fees of around $10K. This fee hikes appear to be unofficial at least for now but expect to pay them as it’s unlikely the government will reverse these.
