    Stakeholders to meet minister over Chief Chirumanzu


    CHIRUMANZU – A cross section of leadership from Chirumanzu comprising headmen, party leadership, chieftanship and residents are holding meetings in which they are calling for the current Chief Chirumanzu, Gerald Mudzengi to step down.
    Although those behind the initiative were reluctant to have their names disclosed, The Mirror has minutes in which Chief Chirumanzu is accused of a litany of cases of misconduct including that he was facing many criminal cases at the courts and that this had soiled the name of the chieftainship.
    The Mirror is reliably informed that influential families of the Chirumanzu chieftainship, headmen and some senior Zanu PF officials had booked a meeting with the Minister of Rural Development and Preservation of National Cultural Heritage Abednigo Ncube for today (Thursday) to raise their issues against the Chief.
    Efforts to contact Chief Chirumanzu for comment were fruitless as his phone was unreachable up to the time of going to Press.
    They also accuse Chief Chirumanzu of appointing more than 28 headmen who are alien to the chieftainship. 
    He is also accused of instigating disputes within the Chirumanzu families. Economically, they accuse Chirumanzu of having failed to influence share ownership schemes as has happened in other regions.
    They also accuse him of violating people's rights.
