Parliamentary carrier: After successfully filing his nomination papers for election to represent Gokwe – Nembudziya Constituency, he was duly elected in the 2013 harmonised elections to serve as Member of Parliament of Zimbabwe, where he has been lauded by both local and global research institutions as one of the greatest legislators of his time. Since 2013 (8th Parliament), he has also served as the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment and through this role, he has fought ardently to advance the interests of young people across the political spectrum.

As Chair, Hon. Wadyajena has taken a tough stance on corruption, successfully spearheading a number of fact-finding missions, such as the Marange-Zimunya Community Share Ownership Trust probe, which culminated in what is widely accepted as a seminal report on the plunder of Zimbabwe’s diamonds. The report made bold recommendations, including the investigation and possible prosecution of senior politicians, marking him as a fearless and true proponent of transparency and accountability. He also led the probe into the controversial disbursement of Youth Funds which unearthed massive abuse and looting by the politically connected at the expense of the grassroots youth. Resultantly, he has come to be known as a courageous crusader against the disenfranchisement of young people in Zimbabwe. He also serves in the Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee, as well as the Public Accounts Committee.

Hon. Wadyajena is one of the youngest, most vibrant, resourceful, visionary and energetic Members of the National Assembly of the Parliament of Zimbabwe. His political ethos of servant leadership finds its roots in the long held belief that ‘public servants ought to be servants first.’
