ZEGU - Your University is Now Up and Running
After the ground breaking ceremony officiated by the Vice President of Zimbabwe Joyce Mujuru and the Chancellor Professor E. H. Guti and Dr E Guti on 10 September 2010, fundraising through working talents began in 2011. As ZAOGA FIF worked talents construction was also taking place. On 15th May, 2012, the university was opened at AMFCC College in Harare with one faculty- the Faculty of Arts- Department of Theology and Religious Studies. The pioneer class had 11 students- five female and six male.

By September 2012, the university moved to its Bindura campus, where construction is still in progress. When fully completed, ZEGU will have five faculties of Arts, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Commerce and ICT, Education and Health Sciences.
Progress as at 5 March 2013
The Faculty of Arts which houses the Department of Theology is almost complete. Only tiling of the faculty administration and fixing of doors is outstanding.
Lecture blocks for the faculties of Agriculture, Commerce and ICT and Education have been roofed. It is expected that by end of March, all the five faculties excluding the administration blocks of the faculties will have been roofed. The 1500 seater dining hall is also roofed. We thank God for such progress in a period of one year. God is faithful. Twelve 3 bed roomed staff houses are complete and are already occupied by senior university staff. Three of these houses are allocated to students.
The infrastructure development and progress has been commended by visitors to ZEGU. The project is ongoing. The university library, great hall, administration block, student hostels are still to be constructed.
In March 2013 ZEGU expects another first year class in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, while the pioneer class moves to second year.
