Samuel Mumbengegwi

Samuel Creighton Mumbengegwi is a Zimbabwean politician.

Mumbengegwi served for a time as Minister of Higher Education and as ZANU-PF Chairperson for Masvingo. According to the Commercial Farmers Union in 2002, he took over Irvin Farm from its white owners as part of land reform.[1] He was subsequently appointed as Minister of Industry and International Trade in August 2002,[2] and he was appointed as the Minister of State for Indigenisation and Empowerment in 2005. On 6 February 2007 he was moved to the position of Minister of Finance, replacing Herbert Murerwa.[3]

In the ZANU-PF primaries for the March 2008 parliamentary election, Mumbengegwi sought the party's nomination for the Chivi-Mwenezi Senate constituency in Masvingo Province, but he was defeated by Josaya Hungwe, a former Governor of Masvingo Province. Mumbengegwi disputed the result and the ZANU-PF national election directorate ordered the vote to be held over again, but Mumbengegwi was defeated for a second time, winning 4,906 votes against 8,736 votes for Hungwe, and therefore Hungwe received the ZANU-PF nomination.[4]

The Herald reported on 3 January 2009 that Mumbengegwi had been dismissed from the Cabinet earlier in the week, along with 11 other ministers, because he no longer held any seat in Parliament.[5]
