Govt bureaucracy delays Beitbridge-Harare highway dualisation
Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Dr Joram Gumbo yesterday said the dualisation of the Beitbridge-Harare highway is being delayed by administrative issues. He revealed that some of the equipment that will be used in the project is stuck in Zambia as Geiger International is waiting for Government to gazette a Statutory Instrument that will enable it to bring in the machinery duty-free.
There are conditions preceding and delays are administrative on the part of Government.Some of their equipment is in Zambia and cannot come into the country because there has to be a Statutory Instrument which allows them to bring that machinery duty-free. While some of the equipment is in Zambia where they have carried out successful projects, some of it is coming from China. The Ministry of Finance is working on the issue of the Statutory Instrument and we hope soon there will be headway. The issue of company registration was also another issue.
