Chitungwiza was formed in 1978 by the amalgamation of three African townships to form a residential dormitory for the capital.

Chitungwiza has not had the colonial influence which has been prevalent in the arms of the other municipal areas in Zimbabwe. We have no information on the meaning or origin of these arms.
