Insiza is situated in Matabeleland South province. It is a rural area. Insiza district lies to the South East of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe and borders Gwanda district to the South, Zvishavane to the east and Umzingwane district to the West. The district is mostly in natural region four. This region experiences fairly low total rainfall (450-650 mm) and is subject to periodic seasonal droughts and severe dry spells during the rainy season. The rainfall is too low and uneven for cash cropping except in certain very favourable localities, where limited drought-resistant crops can afford a side-line. The farming system, in accord with natural factors, should be based on livestock production, but it: can be intensified to some extent by the growing of drought-resistant fodder crops.

The council is a hub council in the hub and spoke programme for gender mainstreaming in local government. It is mentored by Umguza RDC.

Why is it the government projects are based in specified areas in INSIZA district and not supporting other areas like ward 21, ward 20, ward 15. Nothing so far accrue towards the development of these areas and we don’t know the reason but expecting to be the tribalism activity with the conflicts of those claimed chiefs. We all know that these named areas are occupied by mostly SHONA people. People in these areas are handled like foreigners living in a foreign land. Your Positive response to this comment could be greatly appreciated. let every project proposed by the government reach also these areas as you do within the election time

Miss Adelaide Mhlanga says:

Good day. It is very unfortunate that certain areas are left out coz of tribal issues. We should be one people, let’s do away with tribalism discrimination and unite in making our country a better place to live in. Please bring forward what you’d like to see happening in your area
