Grace Mugabe’s Degree an ‘Academic Fraud’

World most famous Former first lady Grace Mugabe’s controversial University of Zimbabwe (UZ) Doctor of Philosophy Degree, which was finally published last week almost four years after graduation, has been described as a mere compilation of plagiarised text and quotations, making it the biggest Academic Fraud of the century.

The 226-page thesis, titled The Changing Social Structures and Functions of the Family: The Case of Children’s Homes in Zimbabwe, was published on the UZ website under her maiden name “Ntombizodwa G. Marufu”. Grace married Mugabe in 1996.

As per online publication of Grace’s research follows a petition by Sociology Department academic staff last month. The lecturers described the awarding of the doctorate as “scandalous”, saying it violated the established procedures and policies of the country’s oldest university.

The Sociology Department, in a petition delivered to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc), said Grace’s degree did not go through processes that other candidates are subjected to, thus describing it as “very suspicious”.
