It is Chirumhanzu Rural District authority. Chirumhanzu District is rural with Mvuma being the only urban setup in the District.


Chirumanzu Rural District Council was established through Proclamation No. 1 of 1993 which amalgamated Takawira District Council and Charter Rural Council and established new boundaries for the district.

Chirumhanzu Rural District Council has the communal area, the resettlement area and three urban areas, Mvuma, Lalapanzi and Charandura under its jurisdiction.

  • Mvuma Area Committee;

Charandura Area Committee.

The district comprises twenty five wards; that is 12 in the communal area, 3 in Mvuma, 1 in Lalapanzi and 9 in resettlement areas.[2]
