Paul Nyathi|President Emmerson Mnangagwa with a battalion of advisers says that he has only just recently discovered that just about ten percent of graduates produced at the country’s institutions of Higher Education are absorbed into formal employment.
Accordingly, Mnangagwa has asked his lieutenants to organise probably the most hostile gathering he will ever have, where he has instructed the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare to call for an indaba between him and the unemployed graduates.
The Deputy Minister of Public Service Labour and Social Welfare Lovemore Matuke confirmed the development.
“We have been sent by the President to compile a database for unemployed graduates countrywide.
“The President has realised that every year he goes around capping graduates at tertiary institutions, but only about 10 percent manage to secure employment.
“Now we are coming up with a programme around Zimbabwe of mobilising graduates from certificate level to honours degrees from all tertiary institutions,” said Deputy Minister Matuke.
He said the programme will be held on Thursday.
