    – There are fears that politics could have been at play when Chikomba Residents and Ratepayers' Alliance (CRRA) failed to launch as scheduled on Tuesday this week.
    Sources said battles between Zanu PF and the MDC T seem to have taken to the fore and left the launch seriously compromised.
    The launch clashed with another event on the same venue where Community in Action, a non- organization was also meeting residents. Community in Action (CIA) is an organization that educates people on their rights.
    CIA eventually failed to hold the meeting after some people believed to be Zanu PF members disrupted it.
    However, The Mirror understands that there was suspicion among some in the CRRA that CIA had come to Chivhu at the behest of MDC T activists who wanted to influence residents against the ruling party.
    CRRA chairperson Collen Zvarevashe dismissed the speculation and said the launch failed because council did not respond on a request to meet the council town board.
    "We failed to launch the residents association because the council did not respond to our request to meet the council town board before meeting the residents," he said.
    When contacted for a comment, Chikomba CEO Luckson Mutara said he is in a meeting.
    Chivhu Residents and Rate payers' alliance comprises of the chairman Collen Zvarevashe and executive members who include the vice chairperson Ngoni Chipindu, secretary Richard Gwatidzo, vice Secretary David Marufu, organizing secretary Joseph Simoyi and committee members Augustine Jiri, Edward Musariri and Dexter Fikani Nkomo. local news
