Ruwa is one of the 4 councils out of the 92 councils in Zimbabwe which is being directed by a female CEO. 2 CEOs are from the rural district councils and the other is from urban ciuncils. In total Ruwa has 9 elected councillors (7 males and 2 females). Council recognises that every policy decision affects women and men differently in order to ensure that the impact of all policy decisions addresses the specific interest and needs of women and men. Ruwa Town Council is one of the few council with a dedicated facebook account where council relays information to residents and stakeholders.
