The Zanzibar Journalism and Mass Media College (ZJMMC) has officially been merged with the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) as a move to employ the idea of the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar to connect its higher learning institutions, the practice aimed at bringing about greater benefits through expanding the opportunities and scope of education in the isles.
This means that the ZJMMC has now been dissolved and instead forms another school of SUZA under the name School of Computing, Communication and Media Studies.
