The group was officially launched at a St Mary's New Highfield Catholic Church with the blessing of the Catholic Youth Association. The group faced a lot of criticism from the day of formation. Elderly people thought it is against church doctrine, while some youth said: "How can you mix African culture and christianity". Others believed, living in modern times, they can not see themselves in traditional African dressing. The group was expelled from operating under catholic premises. Pamuzinda is now holding its practice at Zimbabwe Hall Social Centre.
