Professor Primrose Kurasha,
The Late ZOU Vice Chancellor
The Chairman of the Zimbabwe Open University Council Mr C.A. Samkange, is grieved to advise the nation of Zimbabwe and all valued stakeholders of our Open University, of the untimely death and sad loss of the ZOU Vice Chancellor, Professor Primrose Kurasha, who passed on in Hospital in Harare on Friday night, 17 February 2017. Professor Kurasha stirred the state institution to the world class university, that has become an envy of many institutions within the SADC region, the African continent and the rest of the world.
The University Council would like to assure all the valued stakeholders that despite the great loss to the ZOU family, the University remains committed to professional business continuity in higher education. The Council wishes the Almighty’s grace and comfort to the Kurasha family with whom we share this great loss.
