It is was reported that Zinara donated $170 000 to assist in the resurfacing of the road. When the project was complete, the council held an opening ceremony which Nduna allegedly interjected.In the reports, Ndanga was said to have hired rowdy youths and louder PA system and took over the event from the council, whom he accused of corruption.The youths chanted songs of praise to Zanu Pf and sang insulting songs against MDC, the party where the mayor of Chegutu is from. Eventually, the Mayor left the event and Nduna allegedly took over and threatened those who support MDC.

This road was not constructed by this MDC-T council; it was fixed by our Zanu PF government though Zinara,” he said.If you are a civil servant, you have to toe the line, if you don’t, President Robert Mugabe will uproot you through me,” Nduna said. [4]
