Cape Town, 24th April 2014
The MDC Youth Assembly would like to congratulate Dr. Tapiwa Shumba the
Secretary for Information and Publicity for South Africa province, for
graduating yesterday with a Doctor of Laws (LLD) from Stellenbosch
University in Cape Town, South Africa. He is the Zimbabwe's youngest Dr
of Laws at 28.
Dr. Shumba has once again graduated with first
class degree. The focus of his study was on the functions of
International Trade as a vehicle for economic growth and development and
ultimately for the alleviation of poverty, against the background of
the diversity of laws in the Southern African Development Community
Dr. Shumba is graduating at a very unfortunate time in
our country, when the government of the day is failing to create even a
single job for its citizens. The country has not been able to tap or
benefit from its own talents like what Dr Shumba possess due to the
deliberate failure to develop and implement sound economic policies that
attract investment and result in job creation. It is a tragedy of
The MDC Deputy Secretary General and
Acting Treasurer General, Dr Tapiwa Mashakada also graduated from the
same university last year with a Doctor of Economics. He is the current
President of the Stellenbosch Alumni.
The MDC will continue to
push for the real upliftment of the general populace of Zimbabwe. The
Youth Assembly will soon lead all the jobless countrywide in
demonstrations demanding the 2.2 million jobs that Robert Mugabe's ZANU
PF has voluntarily pledged during its 2013 campaign.
In the demand for jobs we will not tire.
Well done to Dr. Shumba you are an inspiration and you have done us proud.
For and on behalf of the young people of Zimbabwe
MDC Youth Assembly
Secretary for Information and Publicity
Together to end,building a youth with a difference.
