My name is Walter Masakure Manyangarirwa, a Zimbabwean born in Mutare in Eastern Zimbabwe. I started Primary Education in Mozambique before returning to Zimbabwe to complete Primary education. I completed Secondary Education in 1991, and in 1992 I enrolled in the First intake of Africa University. In December 1994, I graduated with a BSc in Agriculture and Natural Resources majoring in Agronomy. I proceeded to enroll for a Master of Science in Crop Protection at the University of Zimbabwe in February 1995. I graduated with a Master of Science in Crop Protection in December 1996 and started working as a research assistant in Virology in the Department of Crop Science at the University of Zimbabwe from January to June 1997. In July 1997 I joined the Plant Protection Research Institute as a Research Officer in Plant Pathology and rose to become a Senior Research officer. In 2001 I graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in Seed Pathology from the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University of Kopenhagen, Denmark. I worked as a lecturer in Plant Pathology at the University of Zimbabwe from 2002 to 2003.
