ZIMBABWE - There's still no record of Grace Mugabe's thesis on the University of Zimbabwe's website more than two weeks after she apparently graduated with a doctorate.

Vice President Joice Mujuru graduated on the same day and her thesis has already been uploaded to the institution's site.

The latest developments will raise more questions about the authenticity of the degree that Grace received.

There's no record of any degree awarded to the First Lady on the university's online libraries catalogue, either under the name Mugabe or under her maiden name Marufu.

In contrast, Mujuru's Doctorate in Philosophy thesis title has been uploaded.

Mujuru's 156-page long thesis, which includes a bibliography, is available for inspection, the site says.

The Zimbabwe Independent is reporting that students from the University of Zimbabwe want those behind the awarding of Grace Mugabe's doctorate to resign.
