Today we share the remarkable and inspirational achievement of a 77 year-old Zimbabwean retiree Hatifari Munongi, who recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Sociology and Gender Development from the Women’s University in Africa (WUA) in Zimbabwe. Munongi has impressed many people with her accomplishment which proves that it’s never too late to go back to school.
The inspirational woman spent 50 years employed as a teacher but still yearned to earn a university degree, and she went back to read for her degree to fulfil a lifelong dream. Munongi was one of the 1 038 students conferred with a degree at the institution’s 12th graduation ceremony.
Munongi is a mother of three, and she has five grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
Zimbabweans have been sharing and celebrating Munongi’s exceptional and inspirational achievement on social media.
Munongi’s inspirational story comes on the heels of another historic achievement by Zimbabwe’s youngest college student, Maud Chifamba. The 18 year-old last recently graduated from the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) with a Bachelors Degree in Accounting (Hons).
