School of Agriculture
The School of Agriculture (SOA) was formaly known as Kizimbani Agricultural Training Institute (KATI) before it was merged with the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) in July 2019. KATI was the sole semi-autonomous Agricultural Training Institute in Zanzibar operating under the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources and fully registered by the NACTE. The institute was legally formed in 2007 by the Act No. 5 of 2007.
