Parliament and the Women's University in Africa yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which the institution will offer various educational programmes to parliamentarians and staff. The agreement was signed by WUA vice-chancellor Professor Hope Sadza, Speaker of the House of Assembly Mr Lovemore Moyo and President of the Senate, Ms Edna Madzongwe.
Mr Moyo welcomed the signing of the agreement.
"This particular MoU is unique from others in the sense that it seeks to provide further education in various courses and programmes of interest to the honourable members of Parliament and staff," he said.
"We are also grateful about the flexibility of this arrangement with regard to the use of each other's library facilities and the fees which we understand will be charged at a concessionary rate to our MPs and staff who would have undertaken to study with WUA."
In return, Parliament would offer internship to WUA students.
