Former Norton National Assembly representative Temba Mliswa appointed village headman for Mliswa Village in Shurugwi

In a recent development, Mr Temba Mliswa, the former Norton National Assembly representative, has been named the Village Headman for Mliswa village in Shurugwi, located in the Midlands province under Chief Banga.

Mr Mliswa assumes this position following the decision of his niece, Ms Maria Dube, who has been serving as the acting village head but has chosen to step down due to health reasons.

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

To demonstrate his commitment, Mr Mliswa announced that his salary as Headman Mliswa would be donated to his niece, Ms Dube, to assist her in covering some of her medical expenses.

“On the 10th of February, I will invite people to the village ceremony. Much respect for my muzukuru who served well in the interim. The salary I’m supposed to get will still be going to her. She needs it more. Mine is to lead the development of the village,” Mr Mliswa added.
