Bid to buy residential stand at 40% concessional rate blocked
In September 2016, the city of Harare councilors allegedly blocked a resolution to sell residential stand in Glenlorne to Chikukwa. The Minister was to buy the stand at a concessional rate of 40 percent. Zanu-PF Councillors were alleged to have argued for the case but did not succeed as their objection was overruled. They accused MDC-T Councillors of sabotaging a Zanu-PF minister.
Claim for recognition
In October 2014, Chikukwa reportedly caused a stir by launching a public outburst at speakers for failing to recognize her at the launch of the National Housing Delivery Strategy at a local hotel.
