It serves as a small administrative and trading centre for the surrounding mixed farming area. In recent years it has grown rapidly and has become a popular area for people moving out of Harare. The Ruwa Rehabilitation Centre just outside the town was established in 1981 for the rehabilitation of disabled ex-combatants.
