Story by Tafara Chikumira

Former Midlands of State University (MSU) students have paid tribute to the late national hero, Professor Ngwabi Bhebhe as a visionary who championed the Education 5.0 model well before the government adopted the new curriculum.

The late national hero, Professor Ngwabi Bhebhe’s works has touched many people locally and internationally through his leadership style.

A father figure, who was the first Vice Chancellor of the Midlands State University also shaped the careers of many respected individuals in society.

“I enrolled at MSU back in 2013. The transition from high school to a tertiary institution is always difficult but Professor Bhebhe made sure we were at home away from home. I would enjoy reading his research work and history books which shaped the way I view the world today,” said a former MSU student.

“Professor Bhebhe taught us hard work and Ubuntu. He would constantly engage us on the need to be innovative and always have an alternative whenever there are problems in life,” said another.

“I would say the late Professor was a visionary who had his own ways of changing the way people think. He gave us life lessons in line with Education 5.0 way before the government had adopted the concept. He taught us entrepreneurship as the answer to our problems not to be job seekers,” said an alumni.

Professor Bhebhe will be buried at the National Heroes Acre in Harare on Saturday.

There will be a church service at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Zimbabwe (ELCZ) Gweru Parish this Wednesday before his body is taken to his Churu farm in Chiwundura for a farewell service.

Mourners are gathered at house number 266 Mutausi Park in Gweru.
