His Worship the Mayor
As newly elected Mayor of Chegutu Municipality, I want to thank fellow policy makers for showing confidence in me by electing me as Mayor for Chegutu Municipality for the period 2023-2028. It is indeed an honour for me to be serving the Municipality, residents and stakeholders in the office of Mayor.
This is my second term in office as a Councillor. As Mayor of Chegutu Municipality, I value the principle of teamwork between and among fellow Councillors, management and the residents of Chegutu, which should see us overcoming challenges that our Council face. Indeed, it is my vision that Chegutu Municipality should transform into a modern urban settlement with sufficient services consistent with the status of a Municipality. This is not a pipe dream but a vision that we can collectively achieve.

About us

Who we are?

Chegutu Municipality is a Local Authority which lies within the sub-national level of Government established to provide services to the residents of Chegutu Town. The Municipality is guided by the Constitution, Urban Councils Act (Chapter 29:15), Public Finance Management Act, Regional Town and Country Planning Act (Chapter 29:12) e.t.c.
Chegutu Municipality is designed for a purpose of excellent service provision to Chegutu residents. This Local Authority can be tracked way back from the Colonial era to current, whereby offspring’s and colleagues of the British South Africa Company (BSAC) spread in Zimbabwe to search for minerals resources.

In 1898 there were much mining activities in Chegutu and it became necessary to establish a Police camp on the site to the present day. Shortly after the establishment of a Police camp, a Civil Administration was set up by the opening of the District Commissioner’s office. The first civic authority was a Village Management Board (VMB), appointed in 1914 to facilitate and provide basic local needs which included water provision. The VMB lasted until 1949 due to the growth of the town, and then it was elevated into a Town Management Board (TMB). The TMB lasted until 1978 when the town was granted the Municipal status. Until the present day the town still holds Municipal status.
