Zimbabwe Govt warns that Unicaf University is not licensed

Share via:

AUTHORITIES in Zimbabwe have issued a public notice advising that two prominent universities/colleges are not licensed to provide any educational services in the country.

The Zimbabwe Council of Higher Education (ZIMCHE), a statutory body established by the Zimbabwe Government to promote and co-ordinate education provided by institutions of higher education, made the announcement.

ZIMCHE also acts as a regulator in the determination and maintenance of standards of teaching, examinations, academic qualifications and research in institutions of higher education.

In a statement published Sunday, 29 May 2022, ZIMCHE warned that Unicaf University and Vee’s College of Health Sciences were not accredited. Both institutions advertise widely, especially on social media platforms.

Scholarly Africa publishes the ZIMCHE statement below:



This notice serves to inform the public that:

1) Unicaf University is NOT accredited with the
Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education as a university.

It is also NOT accredited as a recruitment agency for other universities outside Zimbabwe.

2) Vee’s College of Health Sciences (Vees’ School of Nursing Sciences) is NOT accredited with the Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education as a degree granting college.

Effort to obtain a response from Unicaf Zimbabwe futile for over a week, with the institution’s representatives not keen to speak officially on the phone. Written questions were not responded to, a week on.

However, speaking on condition of anonymity, a staffer at the University’s Harare offices said management was “surprised” by the ZIMCHE statement as Unicaf was already in touch with the regulatory body regarding its status.

“The statement by ZIMCHE creates the unfortunate impression that we are a bogus university. For the record, Unicaf offers globally recognised Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees and is a licensed University in Malawi, Zambia and Uganda.

“We are provisionally accredited or icensed in Zimbabwe – same as in Kenya – and we have been recruiting and operating in these two countries while talking with the authorities,” said the staffer.

In Malawi, Unicaf University is accredited by the Malawi National Council for Higher Education (NCHE), and Unicaf University in Zambia is accredited by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) of Zambia.

In 2020, the university was stopped from enrolling any students in Zimbabwe until its accreditation was complete. At that time, Unicaf Vice Chancellor for Zimbabwe, Professor Cuthbert Katsvanga admitted they were yet to be licensed and would stop enrolling students until the licencing is granted.

“We are waiting for the accreditation for us to start preparing for the enrollment. As soon as our programs are accredited,we will start enrolling students,” Prof Katsanga told a media briefing.

Unicaf delivers lectures virtually off campus. After paying the fees, students receive learning materials which they download and use offline.

On its adverts online, the University says it offers scholarships to its students by deducting 75% off their fees.
