‘Chipanga neglected Makoni West’

OPPOSITION MDC-T’s aspiring parliamentary candidate for Makoni West, Webber Chinyadza, has expressed confidence in reclaiming his former seat, which is currently unrepresented following the expulsion of former Zanu PF youth leader, Kudzanayi Chipanga.


Chinyadza, who represented the constituency between 2008 and 2013 before he was booted out by Chipanga, claimed at the weekend that he had covered a lot of ground and was confident of reclaiming the seat.

“Schools are struggling as they do not have books and the former MP, Chipanga, gave people paraffin and rice and was not concerned about income-generating projects. We have poor roads and clinics do not have medicine,” he said.

Several residents accused Chipanga of neglecting the constituency soon after his victory, as he reportedly spent most of his time on Zanu PF youth league programmes.
Stanley Risinamwana, from ward 15, Risinamwana Village, said there was no development to talk about.

“To be truthful, there was no development in this constituency. We believe the former MP Chipanga was only concerned with power struggles in Harare. Just imagine, we were given paraffin and half bars of soap, we are not happy.”

Tinarwo Marimo, from Chiwetu village, said roads in the constituency where in a bad state.

“Our roads are in a bad state, there is no development to talk about from Chiwetu to Zindoga villages, which is my area. The former MP Chipanga was only interested in giving us soap, paraffin and sometimes rice,” he said

MDC-T provincial spokesperson Trevor Saruwaka said his party had made inroads in the constituency.

“I am not surprised that there is no development, Zanu PF has always been like that. You know that Makoni West constituency was a no-go area for opposition parties,” he said.

Although Chipanga could not be reached for comment, Zanu PF provincial member Joseph Mujati insisted that Makoni West was still a no-go area for opposition parties.
“The writing is on the wall for the MDC to see. The end is fast approaching. The poor attendance of the MDC rally shows that Makoni West is truly a no-go area for these small parties,” he said.

“Who in this country does not want to be identified with the new dispensation?”


  1. he could not have done everything as the main focus was on former amai hence the neglect

    1. Comment.Chinyadza also did nothing but simply to attend memorial ceremonies and people accused him of being a womaniser..

    2. The Newsday has been turned into an appendage of the Herald News that is on a rampage preaching lies as if it is now a Zanu PF machinery of propaganda , shame. The private press can not regurgitate the Military junta’s wishes so that we end up having Praise & worshippers.

  2. even Chinyadza also did nothing during his 5 year tenure. Makoni West has never had an MP with people at heart from Mahachi, Made, Chinyadza to Chipanga

  3. Comment…better vote for me this time

  4. This constituency is unfortunate most of the roads are dust roads but on the national grid they appear tarred.

  5. Kana munhu achinge abatwa nehure zvinonetsa kuti arambe achishanda basa nemazvo. Mahure anonetsa tinozviziva tose.

    1. It is not the duty of an MP to develop a constituency. An MP can only pressurise Ministers and other Govt. departments to develop an area in Zimbabwe. Attacking Chipanga shows how stupid you are. Govt. is the one that collects Taxes and no MP whether from Zanu or MDC-T has a responsibility to build schools or roads or any Health Institutions .. lema.

      1. Witness Maposa


  6. zanu has never done anything patakasiiwa nasmith ndipo tichiri

  7. Chinyadza MDC ,Mujati zanu sekuru nemuzukuru kuda kuurayana kwanai mazvinzwa

  8. Comment paraffine dzaKudzi ndodzomoona nhasi ko webber akamboitei. Chinyadza hospital irikushaya magetsi aripo sei. Chaakagona kuurayisa wana jona mungazi chete. 2008 akapondwa from that time he never gain his heath until death. The bad part of it they were related. Kure nawebber. Mahachi at least he managed to construct wedza rd. Ukaenda rest camp zvidhinha zvakangosiwa madays aMahachi nhanhasi zvakangodaro. Kubva pana munyoro kusvika pana webber hapana zvevanhu. Made nanyakuyedzwa waingita huori. Matractor eGovment kuita awo
