Minister Jonathan Moyo Uses Jah Prayzah for his Ministry
Higher Education Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo has roped in Musician Jah Prayzah to popularise his ministry’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (Stem) initiative.
The famous singer has released a video on STEM. “Hot from the studio here’s a glimpse of Jah Prayzah’s STEM video a link to the full monty!” announced Moyo on his Twitter account. Not over a week ago , The Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa said Government is finalising the STEM Policy Strategy for 2016–2026, with the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development coordinating.
“A significant aspect of this Strategy that Treasury is considering supporting is the long overdue National Skills Survey, given that the last Survey was done way back in 1982, ” he said.
Under the STEM initiative, US$2.8 million was disbursed through the Zimbabwe Development Fund (ZIMDEF) towards the payment of first and second term school fees for around 5 132 A-level students, studying Mathematics, Physics, Biolog, and Chemistry.
“The gender distribution of the total enrolled students on the STEM initiative was 3 347 (65%) male students, and 1 785 (35%) female students” added Chinamasa.
