Career

Ziyambi's political career took centre stage when he was appointed as the deputy minister of home affairs. During the height of the ZANU PF factional wars, Ziyambi was appointed the acting provincial chair for Mashonaland West. He was eventually removed from the provincial chair's position in mid-June of 2015 following accusations of dishonesty and failure to plan for the election of a substantive committee.[1] It was rumoured that the removal of Ziyambi was also making way for Philip Chiyangwa.
