Bindura University of Science Education (BUSE) recently handed over new vehicles to senior staff members in a bid to convenience their participation in University business and effectively improve the functioning of the institution’s operations.
A shortage of vehicles was hitting hard on the University resulting in senior staff members finding it difficult to implement some planned programmes designed to make it fully realise its potential in academic, research and innovations in line with Education 5.0.
Out of a total of 7 vehicles purchased, 3 FotonTunland twin cabs and 2 Proton Saga sedans were handed over while one FotonTunland single cab and a Proton Saga sedan are yet to be distributed.
Speaking after handing over the vehicles, BUSE Registrar, Mr Jairos Makunde said the vehicles will go a long way in enhancing and aiding the senior staff to fully execute their duties as well as improving their working conditions.
“The vehicles are bound to assist our senior staff to fully execute their duties and also improve their working conditions thus enhancing their convenience”, said Mr Makunde.
“This is part of the ongoing efforts to improve working conditions of senior staff. Other vehicles will be procured to cater for other senior staff that is yet to receive vehicles.
He said the vehicles were purchased from a locally based vehicle assembling company, Quest Motors based in Mutare to deliberately stimulate the growth of the local industry in line with the envisaged 2030 vision of an upper middle-income economy through local industrialization.
