The Right Honourable Prime Minister, Mr. Morgan Richard Tsvangirayi weighed in and also called on Zimbabweans to respect each other’s views during the outreach meetings. The Honourable Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Arthur Mutambara also called on Zimbabweans to seize the opportunity available to prepare a document for posterity for the future generations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
