Gutu is the third largest district in Masvingo Province, southern Zimbabwe, after Chiredzi and Mwenezi. It is the northernmost district in the province. The name “Gutu” is historically reported to have emerged from “Chinomukutu wemiseve” – meaning, “the one with a load of arrows”.  Mupandawana is the largest district service centre.

The council is a spoke council in the hub and spoke programme for gender mainstreaming in local government, mentored by Bikita RDC. Gutu RDC has a draft gender policy. Gender issues are discussed in the district gender committee. The council has a vocational training centre and a junior council in place.
