Gumbo criticises Harare City Council for failing to use the little Zinara allocations to rehabilitate roads
Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister Saviour Kasukuwere and his Transport and Infrastructural Development counterpart Dr Joram Gumbo met to resolve the issue between local authorities and the Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (Zinara) on the amounts the latter disburses for road maintenance. Speaking to The Herald Gumbo criticised local authorities for complaining about Zinara funds yet they had nothing to show for the money that they had received from the roads administration parastatal.
Zinara is equally committed to this national goal, but where I have an issue is with some local authorities that are making noise about Zinara disbursements, particularly City of Harare. They say Zinara gives them inadequate money, about $1 million per quarter. But what do they have to show for that little money that they have received? Can they show us one road that they have maintained or patched up using the money that they have received?Feedback
He said Bulawayo, which is the best run local authority in terms of its roads, has managed to maintain their roads using the little money that they get from Zinara while Harare has failed.
