The University of Zimbabwe (UZ) finally released the thesis for Grace Mugabe’s Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree, almost four years after conferring it on her.


For the thesis, the former first lady used her second name and maiden name, “Ntombizodwa G. Marufu” for some reason. The thesis is titled “The changing social structure and functions of the family: The case of children’s homes in Zimbabwe.”

The degree attracted intense criticism amid speculation that Grace did take the required period of time to complete the degree. However, the release of the thesis seems to have intensified the focus on both Grace and the University of Zimbabwe.

Here is how some Zimbabweans reacted online.
