Willias Madzimure is a Zimbabwean politician who was a member of parliament for Kambuzuma Constituency in Harare, 2018 to 2022. He formerly was a member of the Movement for Democratic Change - Tsvangirayi (MDC-T) party. He moved to the MDC Renewal Team in 2014, and in 2022 joined the Citizens' Coalition for Change.

Background

Madzimure was born on 17 September 1964.

Madzimure was recalled from representing Kumbuzuma constituency after a controversial split from the [[MDC-T] party in 2014 under the leadership of former secretary general MDC-T Tendai Biti and Elton Mangoma. He heard the result 17 March 2015 after the speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda announced a ruling dismissing Madzimure and his fellow colleagues from parliament. Their party was previously called the MDC Renewal Team before it rebranded to UMDC on its official launch. [1]

In the Zimbabwe By-elections (March 2022), Kambuzuma Constituency elected CCC’s Willias Madzimure with 4 457 votes, who retained the seat he won in 2018. He beat Oscar Nyamunokora, of Zanu PF with 1800 votes, and Fungai Chiposi, of MDC Alliance, with 154 votes. There were 79 spoilt ballot papers. [2]
