    Chinotimba eyes Bikita headmanship

    BIKITA – Outspoken Zanu PF Buhera South MP, Joseph Chinotimba has attended the installation of the new Mufundirwa headman in Bikita amid loud whispers that he was eyeing the position at the next opportune time.
    Chinotimba belongs to the Mufundirwa clan and his house is the next in line of the headmanship. There are eight houses with a claim to the headmanship of the Mufundirwa which is of the Shumba totem.
    Traditional chiefs from all over Bikita gathered at Madziire Primary School where the installation of Shayamano Jiri who becomes Headman Mufundirwa took place.
    Jiri is under Chief Budzi and he succeeds Chipapa Muchara who died in 2015.
    Headman Mufundirwa told The Mirror that his appointment took him by surprise as there are many houses with a claim to the chieftainship and any of them could have landed the post.
    “I’m honored to be the new Headman Mufundirwa. There are eight households and I am in the third household. Our people are scattered all over including in Buhera, Chimanimani and Bikita. They migrated to different places after our land was turned into a conservancy”, he said.
    The area under Mufundirwa is in Ward 24 and it stretches from Dewure River to Save Valley Conservancy.
    Chief Budzi said one of Headman Mufundirwa’s key tasks is to stop deforestation that is rampant in the area.
    The event was attended by MP Anna Ranganai, Bikita District Development Coordinator (DDC) Bernard Hadzirambwi and Masvingo Provincial Development Coordinator (PDC) Fungai Samuel Mbetsa.
