Matabeleland South Province is set to have a third university, University of Matopo Trust (UMT) following plans by the Brethren in Christ Church to open an institution of higher and tertiary education in Mtshabezi Gwanda district. 

UMT chairperson Professor Henry Sibanda said the plan is to have the faculties spread across three of their institutions, which are Mtshabezi, Wanezi and Matopo missions.

Matopo University Trust which will open its doors in August with an initial enrolment of 400 students, brings the total number of universities in the largely rural province to three, inclusing Solusi and Gwanda State University.

The university will operate from the church’s Mtshabezi Mission Bible college.
