UZ Scores High at ZITF 2019


The University of Zimbabwe’s participation at the 2019 edition of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair ended on a high note following ‘Team UZ’s scooping of two medals at the international show-piece. UZ won a silver medal for scooping the 2nd best overall exhibit in the Education and Training Competition. The 1st prize went to the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, while the National University of Science and Technology clinched 3rd position to win a bronze medal. By coming 2nd after the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, UZ effectively beat all the national and international higher and tertiary education institutions that exhibited at ZITF 2019. Virtually all the country’s universities and colleges participated in the competition, while a few, predominantly from other SADC countries were at the Fair. Not to be outdone, was the University of Zimbabwe’s exhibit on ‘The Soya Bean Research and Development Program’ that also scooped a silver medal in the Food Group competition. The exhibit, developed and fronted by Professor Mpepereki and Mr T. Mbedzi, sought to promote household utilization of soya bean through the development of a wide range of soya bean recipes and products.

The 2019 ZITF ran from 23-27 April 2019 under the theme, ‘Propagating Industrial Growth through Trade and Investment’. The University of Zimbabwe had on show, a portfolio of 14 high-end exhibits that cut across a wide cross section of sectors of the economy including, education, manufacturing, agriculture, health, transport, travel and tourism and construction.
