14 August 2021

By A Correspondent- Harare Institute of Technology (HIT) has barred unvaccinated students from sitting for their end of semester examinations.

In a notice to students Friday, HIT registrar Mary Samupindi said unvaccinated students would also be barred from accessing university accommodation.

“The Harare Institute of Technology wishes to inform students that the 2020/2021 academic year examinations will commence three days after the government proclaims the lifting of the COVID-9-induced national lockdown,” she said.

She added that students without vaccination cards should produce a COVID-19 negative PCR test issued within 48 hours.
Universities have been closed since last month following a surge in COVID-19 cases.
