Uzumba Maramba Pfungwe Rural District Council was formed in 1982 according to the RDC Act (Chapter 29:13). UMP RDC is dedicated to delivering quality services to its customers but understands that this cannot always be done in isolation. Throughout the strategic planning process, District Councillors and management considered the unique nature of UMP which is wholly communal.

UMP District lies in the northeastern part of Zimbabwe, stretching for about 120km in a Southwest-Northeast direction. UMP basically covers land lying between Mazowe River and its tributary, the Nyadire. The district’s entire 2 660km2 is wholly communal and is currently divided into seventeen (17) administrative wards. Mazowe River marks the boundary between UMP and Rushinga and Shamva districts to the north and west respectively. On the eastern sides of Nyadire lie Mudzi (northeast) and Mutoko (southeast).To the south of UMP (boundary Muhume River) lies Murewa District.

Uzumba Maramba Pfungwe RDC is a spoke council mentored by Murehwa RDC in Mashonaland East. The council was rated the second best spoke council at the 2020 Zimbabwe SADCProtocol@Work summit. This was the council’s inaugural participation at this event.
