Published: 30 March 2019 (358 Views)
Josiah Tungamirai, V. Musungwa and E.J.M Zvobgo are among the street names that residents in the developing suburb of Clipsham Views will see if current naming proposals by City of Masvingo's health, housing and environmental services committee are passed.

E.J.M Zvobgo stands for Eddison Jonas Mudadirwa Zvobgo who died in August 2003 at the age of 68. He served as in defferent cabinet portfolios and as Member of Parliament (MP) for Masvingo South for many years after independence.

Tungamirai, who died in August 2005 at the age of 56, was a retired air chief marshal who commanded the Air Force of Zimbabwe until 1992 when he was replaced by Perence Shiri. He later served as Gutu North MP and as a cabinet minister.

V.G Musungwa is short for Vitalis Gava Musungwa Zvinavashe who died in March 2009 at the age of 65. Zvinavashe, who hailed from Bikita, took over as Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) commander from the now late Solomon Mujuru in July 1994 and served until his retirement in December 2003.

All the three men fought in the liberation struggle in their different capacities and were members of the ruling Zanu PF party.

Other heroes like Sheba Tavarwisa, T.T Zawaira, Helen McGhie and E. Nkala have had their names also included on the list.

Residents can also expect to see such street names as Rupiza, Maheu, Geja, Ndari, Mbambaira, Chirugu, Bonga, Nhanga, Rukukwe and Gangauta.

"The names were suggested by the Infrastructural Development of Zimbabwe (IDBZ)…. The committee agreed to add four other names namely Alois Chaimiti, Joshua Femias Foroma Chakabuda, Francis Aphiri and Daniel Muchuchuti," read part of the committee's minutes.

IDBZ and Gorge Safaris are the developers of the Clipsham Views residential stands.
