    MASVINGO-Businessman and newly elected Chivi Rural District Chairperson Godfrey Huruva Mukungunugwa (33) has set his eyes on the chairmanship of the seven RDCs in the province taking over from Killer Zivhu who is now the legislator for Chivi South.
    Huruva was elected as Chivi RDC chairman with 22 votes on early this month where he beat two other contestants Taurai Masvinu and Genius Maridza who garned 2 and 8 votes respectively. He said he wants the Province to have one vison hence the need for him to become the provincial chairman.
    "I am going for the provincial chairman's post so that we can improve the living conditions for our communities if we have one vision as a Province. In Chivi we have begun a massive solar  electrification programme as the sun is readily available and all that we need are the panels. We want our children to study using eco-friendly lights and move away from candles, paraffin and firewood which are a danger to them and the environment. 
    "These should also be extended to clinics and Police bases to ease the way they operate in remote areas, that will also go a long way in retaining personnel," said Huruva.
    Huruva is the councilor for ward 6 in Chivi North and this his first time to be elected into council, but he said that is not a hindrance as he has vast experience in political administration which he acquired starting from the tender age of 16 while at high school in Marondera.
    In an interview with The Mirror, Huruva said that he wants to address issues of water supply, education, health, energy and infrastructure development which are critical in rural areas.
    Huruva facilitated the completion of a two classroom block at Maramba Primary School, construction of three dams in Chivi namely Jenya, Maramba and Gudhemarufu under the command water harvest program initiated by President Emmerson Mnangagwa when he was the Deputy President in 2016.  
    He was formally elected into ZANU-PF structures in 2005 as ward 6 youth chairperson until 2014 when he was elected provincial deputy secretary for finance and in 2016 was susbstantive provincial secretary for finance a position he holds up to now.
    Huruva is the youngest RDC chairman in the Province and if elected provincial chairman he could the youngest person holding that position in the country.
