Chitungwiza — known colloquially as Chi Town — is a high-density dormitory town in Zimbabwe. The town is approximately 30 kilometres south of the capital, Harare. It was formed in 1978 from three townships: Seke, Zengeza, and St Marys.
There is one main highway that connects the town to Harare which is in serious need of maintenance as of 2007. Public transport is composed of regular single level buses and more reliably minibus taxis (called emergency taxis locally). All public transport services tend to be overcrowded throughout the day due to shortages of vehicles and spare parts experienced as a result of the country's poor economic performance under the Mugabe regime.
