HIGHER Education minister Jonathan Moyo says he will pursue a law degree in honour of his late daughter Zanele who had always wished to become a lawyer.


Zanele (20) died under mysterious circumstances in Cape Town a fortnight ago. She was pursuing a Political Science, International Relations and Gender Studies degree at the University of Cape Town.


However, the Tsholotsho North legislator tweeted on Friday that his daughter had wished to become a lawyer and following her death he had decided to study law to honour her wish.

“As one of the three things in Zanele’s honour and because she ultimately wanted to be a lawyer, I’m embarking on an LLB to do what she wanted done,” Moyo tweeted.

“It is food for thought to reflect on the implications of the fact that the only title which God shares with human beings is that of Father!”

At the weekend, Zanu PF National Commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere posted pictures of him with Moyo in a lecture room.

Moyo, Kasukuwere and President Robert Mugabe’s nephew, Indigenisation minister Patrick Zhuwao have enrolled for a law degree with the University of Zimbabwe.

On Thursday, Moyo tweeted that he believed everything happened for a purpose.

“From my faith everything happens for a reason and from my education everything has a cause but in both cases some questions have no answers!” he said.

Speaking at his daughter’s graveside in Harare, Moyo also said he would give his life to God after the devastating loss of his daughter.
