Timothy Munorowazvo has been installed as the substantive Chief Muusha of the Mhakwe community in Chimanimani West, closing a decade-long leadership vacuum.

Munorowazvo takes over from his nephew Chenjerai Muusha who was in an acting capacity.

This comes at a time the Second Republic is restoring the dignity of traditional leaders by filling vacant positions in line with the constitution.

The ceremony was presided over by the Deputy Minister of Local Government and Public Works, Honourable Marian Chombo, who chronicled the family history and reiterated the government’s resolve to restore chieftainships countrywide.

“As you are aware, the process of installing a new chief is not easy as the government has to track a lot of issues including criminal records. We were supposed to install Chief Muusha last year, but unfortunately, he lost his wife, so it was not possible. However, the government has fulfilled its mandate and now the burden is now upon the leadership to be exemplary and ensure they deliver according to the Traditional Leadership Act. The installation process followed due to protocol and as such has no dispute issues,” said the deputy minister.

Manicaland Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Honourable Nokuthula Matsikenyere and the provincial Chiefs Council chairman, Chief Shepherd Chengeta Makumbe implored the newly installed chief to foster unity, peace and positive community relations.

“We are grateful to the government for finally giving our community a leader who will spear development and assist toward implementation of government programmes in Chimanimani,” said Hon Mwatsikenyeri.

Chief Makumbe noted, “Now that we are heading towards the general elections, we are grateful to the government for installing a leader who will drive its vision of uniting our people.”

Meanwhile, the Second Republic continues to prioritise the welfare of traditional leaders by electrifying their homesteads and providing vehicles to monitor development in their jurisdictions.
