As part of national efforts to promote good corporate governance and ethical practices, participants signed Integrity Pledges before the commencement of the training.  Professor M. Rukuni, the Council Chairman, led the ZIMCHE Council in signing the pledges. Meanwhile, Professor K. P. Dzvimbo, the ZIMCHE Chief Executive Officer, led the management team.

Professor Fanuel Tagwira, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, addressed the participants. He emphasised the role everyone must play in fighting corruption. He urged public officials in higher education to set an example by rejecting corrupt practices and performing their duties ethically.

ZACC Commissioner Gabriel Chaibva also spoke at the event. He detailed the various forms of corruption affecting the public sector and stressed the need for collective action to combat these issues. This training aims to strengthen the integrity and ethical standards within state agencies and entities under the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education.
