"Within 12 months we are going to start working on our main road, within four months we are going to bring boosters for your network, I want to make sure Mhondoro comes back on the development map," he said.

Zanu-PF Women's League secretary-general and the Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister, Cde Monica Mutsvangwa, thanked the people of Mhondoro for resoundingly voting for Ambassador Mutsvangwa.

"I want to thank you for voting Ambassador Mutsvangwa into office. He has promised me his undying support and love for the development of his rural home," she said before calling for unity, peace and harmony before, during and after the polls. In his remarks, Zanu-PF's Mhondoro-Mubaira constituency candidate, Cde Chamu Chiwanza, confirmed that all the primary poll candidates and their supporters had united forces.

"We have united our forces and we want to make sure President Mnangagwa wins. I also want to thank you for voting for me to represent our party," he said.

The celebrations brought together the people of Norton, Selous, Chegutu and Mhondoro Mubaira to unite and work in harmony ahead of the imminent harmonised elections.
