Seke Rural is a parliamentary constituency within the Seke District of the Mashonaland East Province of Zimbabwe. The town of Chitungwiza is located there. It is named after Seke who ruled the area before the British arrived. Seke was the first son of Nyashanu, and he and his brothers Marange, Chiweshe, Hwata, Gwenzi and Musimuv were famously known as the Hera Brothers. They conquered the northern and eastern parts of Zimbabwe. Nehanda, the great spirit medium during the 18th century, was the daughter of Hwata, who had settled in the Northern parts of Zimbabwe.

In the 2005 general election the candidate of the Zanu PF was declared the winner. This was in contrast to the fact that the candidate of the MDC polled an overall majority. The declared result was that the number of votes for the Zanu PF declared exceeded the number of total votes.
