Masvingo Teachers’ College opened its doors in January 1981 with a small enrolment of 200 students at Morgenster Teachers’ College. Six months later the college became fully established as Andrew Louw Zintec College close to its present site. In September 1994 newly built infrastructure was officially commissioned by the then President His Excellency Comrade Robert Gabriel Mugabe.
