She was declared the winner after she got 2 287 votes, with ZANU PF’s Benson Hwata getting 1 304, Anderson Paradza of MDC-T with 21 votes and Charity Shoko the DUZ candidate getting a paltry 17 votes.
Cllr Daniel Mberikunashe, also of the CCC, was been elected Deputy Mayor for Masvingo City.
Mberikunashe is one of the most senior councillors in the council in terms of age and experience and this is his third term as a councillor.
