“I’ve been approached by Zanu PF, by ZAPU & other parties. But going by the din,the continuous noise on social media, the consensus is that I should go “Yellow”. So I’ve decided to join @CCCZimbabwe as an ordinary card carrying member”
“Thank you to all citizens for the welcomes and reminders of my past transgressions. I am coming as a supporter. Whatever post I eventually hold will be with your wisdom. I shall put my shoulder to the wheel where you will direct. Thank you.
“I used to think Twitter is not a mirror of the ground in terms of politics. The 2022 By-Election proved me wrong. SOCIAL MEDIA IS THE GROUND. Listen.

Chiposi is a Zimbabwean politician, photographer and activist who was an aspiring Independent Member of Parliament for Southerton Constituency in Harare in the July 2018 elections.
He is also the Founder of the Proudly Zimbabwean Foundation, Co-Founder of Citizens Zimbabwe. In March 2022, Chiposi contested in the Kambuzuma Constituency by-election as an MDC Alliance candidate and lost.
In 2008, Fungai founded Proudly Zimbabwean group on Facebook and eventually registered it as a Non-Profit in 2011. With guidance of PZF Chairman, Dr Joseph Kanyekanye and Godfrey Pasipanodya, Dave Emberton and Devine Ndhlukula (board of trustees) the organization put up bins in Harare CBD and conducted clean-ups across the country.
In 2014, Fungai walked for 1,000km across the country raising awareness to litter. He did the walk after noticing that the tightening economy would mean drying up of support from the corporate sector, which had hitherto supported the foundation.
The walk began in Plumtree, proceeded to Bulawayo, Gweru, Shurugwi, Mandamabwe, Masvingo, Birchenough Bridge, Mutare, Rusape, Marondera and finally Harare. Fungai interacted with more than 1,800 citizens during the walk. He was walking solo and being sheltered by well-wishers on the way. Bin-it Zimbabwe was a flagship program of Proudly Zimbabwean Foundation. The foundation sought to give citizens a sense of ownership of public infrastructure in their communities.
He worked briefly with Karen Mutasa at Jason Moyo project and also co-ordinated Colour Spekes project under the guidance of Louise Bragge. In 2016 he co-founded Citizens Zimbabwe with Duduzile Nyirongo and a group of other friends. The trust seeks to create an empowered, active and responsible citizenry.
