Temba Mliswa: From Norton MP to Village Head

Former Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa has been appointed village head in his rural home in Shurugwi.

Temba Mliswa Concedes Defeat to Tsvangirai Richard

Temba Mliswa had been a parliamentarian for years, having represented Hurungwe before his expulsion from ZANU-PF in 2015. He ran as an independent candidate for the Norton seat in a 2016 by-election and won.

2018 Mliswa ran again in Norton and thrashed ZANU PF’s Chris Mutsvangwa. However, in the 2023 elections, he squared off with Morgan Tsvangirayi’s son, Richard, and he lost the seat.

Since the August 2023 election loss, Temba Mliswa has been less visible in the streets.

It seems Temba has a passion for leading people and has now bounced back, albeit in a less influential position.

He took to social media earlier today to announce that he is the new Village Head in his rural area. Mliswa replaced his niece Maria Dube, who resigned, citing illness. He will lead Mliswa Village under Chief Banga in Shurugwi.

As village head, Mliswa will now be responsible for:

  • Allocating communal land and other resources to households in the community
  • Collecting and distributing the village’s surplus production
  • Settling disputes between members of the community
  • Disciplining members of the community for violating rules and customs
  • Performing ceremonial duties for births, marriages, deaths, harvests, and other traditional feasts
  • Chairing the village assembly and the village development committee

Speaking on his appointment, Temba Mliswa beamed:

“Ichoo ndicho! Mochikorokotedza muchida musingade. Chibhuru Sabhuku. This is a position passed down in the family lineage for years from my grandfather, Peter Sixpence Mliswa, to my father and vazukuru vekwaDziva, who kept it going.

“Now that I’m no longer time-pressed with politics, I will keep the family name and tradition going. This is for my Dad, who always said the Mliswa line will never die out. I will keep it going. You don’t get elected for this, but it’s a bloodline issue.

“I’m excited to take up this role & bring development to my village. As traditional leaders, we are not allowed to be partisan so that I will abide by that. I invite you all to Mliswa village, Shurugwi & its great people. We shall be a model village leading development from the bottom.”
