A director with a private college that has opened doors to the Bikita students claims that they aim at producing engineers from rural settings. The learning institution named First Choice College is located at Mbuya Nehanda in eastern Bikita.
“We have opened to college in order to cover the gap between urban areas and rural ones. We have a science department which is offering subjects that prepares students to become engineers in life.
