Chief Ngungumbane’s election saw him retaining the seat while Chief Chireya was elected for the first time. Speaking on the sidelines of the process, Ngungumbane said the smooth flow of the process reflected the people’s minds.
“I am happy that I have been elected to represent other Midlands Chiefs in senate. The election went on peacefully and I want to encourage other chiefs to remain united.
“We are also happy that we now have a representative from Gokwe and we hope he will represent the people from that side in the senate,” Ngungubane.
