Congratulations the youngest Dr

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 (SADC).

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 monumental proportions.

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

Clifford Hlatywayo
MDC Youth Assembly
Secretary for Information and Publicity

Together to end,building a youth with a difference.
