NUST Prof Collapses, Dies


Staff Reporter


RENOWNED researcher and National University of Science and Technology (Nust) lecturer, Professor George Shava has died.


He was 59.


Prof Shava succumbed to heart disease on Saturday at his home in Bulawayo.


He was one of the few full professors at Nust who was instrumental in crafting policies around the training of high school teachers and implementing Education 5.0.


In an interview yesterday at their family home at Lot 1, Beuna Vista, his widow, Mrs Nosizo Shava described her late husband as a loving person who was passionate about academic issues. “We are saddened by the loss of our father, friend and grandfather who was so full of life. He was diagnosed with a heart condition in 2016 and has been on medication since then,” she said.


“On Saturday after supper, he just collapsed and when we got to the hospital we received the bad news. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and the church.”


Mrs Shava said a service will be held today at their home at 12 midday before the family leaves for Mberengwa where Prof Shava will be buried tomorrow.
