HONOURABLE Innocent Benza says it has always been his dream to one day serve his home constituency in parliament.
He is now doing that after winning the ticket to represent Mutasa Central during the August harmonised elections.
“It has been my dream to be a parliamentarian one day. I am very humbled for seeing it through.
“I would like to salute people in Mutasa Central Constituency for voting for me. I can’t thank them enough.
“It gives me great joy and pride to have had what’s in my plate right now,” Benza said.
Perhaps it is this selflessness that won him the hearts of people in Mutasa Central.
“I don’t really expect rewards when I do things. I love sport and draw a lot of joy seeing people enjoying themselves playing sport,” Benza said.
He has established a Division Two side for his constituency.
“We have several professional teams and we have also established academies for different sport codes at our schools and colleges.
“My hope is to see sport growing so much that Zimbabwe becomes a powerhouse in more than just one sport code.
“I believe that sport is a very big industry that can employ hundreds of thousands if not millions of people if run well.
“I am going to give sport a voice in parliament and hopefully things will move the way sport stakeholders want to see them moving.”
