Zimbabwe just as any African lags behind in terms of technology the reason being there is very little appreciation of science and maths as a subjects.
Most students leave high school with limited options because they don't have science and maths.
Inasmuch as it is inconveniencing the students, the nation is the biggest loser; losing a potential scientist or technologist in every student that fails the subjects.
Our science and technology policy needs to be radical so we revolutionize our society from a peasant agriculture based economy to a tech savvy economy in one generation.
If we start today we achieve tomorrow. We need to put politics aside and undo the blinkers that have for so long held us back from embracing technology as the backbone of our development.
