He was named in a court case, TRACY MUTINHIRI v JEREMIAH CHIWETU, of which the judgement was delivered 25 November 2013. [1]

After a February 2022 rally, the ZANU PF candidate, Jeremiah Chiwetu was very confident that the Party was going to retain the seat. He said the constituency faced a number of challenges. Despite having 40 schools, and being home to the Marondera University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (MUAST), not many constituents were benefitting from the institution due to lack of Advanced Level schools.

Chiwetu was the legislator of the constituency from 2013 to 2018. [2]
