Reformed Church Vice Chancellor resigns

The Reformed Church University, a private tertiary learning institution based in Masvingo, has announced the resignation of its Vice Chancellor, Wiseman Magwa.

In a statement, the RCU Chairperson, Advice Viriri, said Magwa, a veteran educationist who was the founder VC for the university from September 2011, resigned on December 31 2013 to “pursue other interests in his renowned academic career”.

On Magwa, Viriri said: “He played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Reformed Church University, a tertiary institution with strong vision for empowering people living with-and-without disabilities through formal education.”

Enos Chomutiri, the current Coordinating Lecturer in the Theology and Religious Studies faculty, will replace him in an acting capacity.

“Chomutiri shall continue to build on the University's vision of creating a world-class centre for excellence in special needs education, theology, commerce and community service. As… Chomutiri already coordinates the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, he is well suited to lead the expansion and growth of RCU,” said Viriri in the statement.

He added that RCU would look for a substantive VC and make an announcement of the appointment in due course.

RCU was established in January 2010 after the Reformed Church in Zimbabwe which runs it was granted a charter and permission to develop a university by the Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education, a government body.

Its mandate is to provide equal opportunities for holistic and quality education meant to produce innovative and morally upright graduates with leadership skills.
