Goromonzi West is a constituency in Zimbabwe. It was created in the delimitation of 2008 from the former Goromonzi constituency, and covers Makumbe, Parirewa, Domboshava and Makumbe Mission.[1] As of 2013, it elected one representative to the House of Assembly. In the March 2008 parliamentary election the seat was won by the ZANU-PF candidate who defeated the MDC candidate from the Morgan Tsvangirai faction (MDC-T) by just 262 votes. In the 2013 election the ZANU-PF candidate, Biata B. Nyamupinga, was again challenged by Ian Makone (MDC-T) as well as by Wonder Chinamora (MDC). Nyamupinga retained her seat in the Assembly.[2]

A recount in Goromonzi West was conducted in April 2008, increasing ZANU-PF's total by one vote, from 6,193 to 6,194.[3]
