MBERENGWA-Outgoing Mberengwa Zanu PF Ward 31 Councillor and the party’s secretary for commissariat in the Midlands, Maud Ngwenya (57), is urging women to vote for her party in the August 23, 2023 elections.
Ngwenya, who is now eyeing to be a provincial councillor, said her party gives women influential positions to influence the change they desire. 
“I am the first woman in the Midlands Province to hold the position of Secretary for Commissariat in the main wing. I want to encourage people to vote for Zanu PF as it is the only party that recognises the existence of women in politics. It allows us to be in decision-making platforms. Women know the difficulties faced by the community more than our male counterparts,” she said.
Ngwenya has been a councillor for 17 years, and she said if elected, she will ensure that a borehole is drilled in every ward in the Midlands.
She was a primary school teacher from 1983-2001. She became a Councillor for Mberengwa Ward 31 in 2006 and held the position until she decided to run for the provincial councillor post. Ngwenya also held several positions within the party. 
“During my tenure as a councillor, I was involved in the construction of schools such as Masase Primary and High Schools, Jordan Primary, Chiedza Primary and Musiningira Primary Schools. I donated books, three-legged size 25 pots, constructed toilets and drilled boreholes. I was instrumental in the construction and development of Masase Hospital and Chiedza Clinic,” she added.
