– Chivhu is going the way of many towns in Zimbabwe when it launches Chikomba Residents and Rate Payers' Alliance on Tuesday next week.
The platform will represent the interests of residents in the town of Chivhu and in Chikomba District.
Some 10 executive members have been organising the launch.
 The executive currently has Collen Zvarevashe as the association chairman, Moses Jiri is the vice chairperson, Richard Gwatidzo is the secretary, Simoyi Zirecho is the organising secretary, Elijah Ruvete is the treasurer an Dexter Fikani Nkomo and Tawanda Maregedze are committee members.
The number of executive members is expected to increase as special interest bodies like the disabled will also appoint their representatives.
Collen Zvarevashe, the association chairman said their executive shall include people from different backgrounds which include the business community, the informal sector, the disadvantaged, youths, churches, arts and talents, civic groups, culture and tradition.
Zvarevashe said Committees which will be at ward level will assemble to appoint the executive committee.
 The association served the council with the notification of their existence on Tuesday. Zvarevashe said they will also hold a meeting with residents in two weeks' time together with councillors. He said the details of the operations of the association are well spelt in their constitution which will be issued at the meeting.
The Association chairman said the thrust of the association is not on local government but on enhancing development through promotion of talents by employing them. He said this will be done through fundraising for the needy children to support their education, assist them with medication, conducting community awareness campaigns on civic rights, promotion of gender equality through promoting women in society and integrating culture in society through cultural activities.
He also said that they were driven to form an alliance because they believe in a community where decisions are both made and implemented by the masses, where health, education, shelter, food and information is a right for every citizen.
Zvarevashe added that the association will open an office in town soon.
