    - Solomon Tsvangirai who is headman Neshangwe and Rosemary Mudzviti whom is ZANU PF councilor for Ward 26 in Mupatsi in Chikomba East, nearly exchanged blows at a meeting held in the ward last Sunday over accusations of corruption.
    Hell broke loose at a meeting held at Mupatsi Business Centre when Neshangwe told the gathering that Mudzviti and Zanu PF chairman for the ward Owen Matsike went to Chikomba Rural District Council and collected $600 intended for development.
    The amount is a percentage of the rates paid by farmers which is retained in the ward for development.
    Neshangwe who was not invited at the meeting alleged that Mudzviti collected $600 and $200 reached the ward.
    Mudzviti however, informed the village heads at the meeting that she only received $200 from Council.
    Furious village heads who contacted The Mirror on condition of anonymity alleged that Mudzviti and Matsike stole some money they received from Council.
    The money was to be used for the construction of a ward clinic.
    Headman Neshangwe accused councilor Mudzviti of not involving him in developmental issues in the ward and holding meetings without his knowledge.
    Councillor Mudzviti confirmed the exchange she had with Headman Neshangwe but  refuted allegations that she stole money from council.
    Sources said that the exchange between the two was so fiery that Mudzviti pointed a finger into the headman's face as the two got close to exchanging blows.
    Headman Neshangwe also confirmed the incident and said Mudzviti nearly beat him up.
    "I had some misunderstanding with councilor Mudzviti over council funds that she collected with Matsike. She almost assaulted me in the presence of village heads," said Headman Neshangwe.
