James Makamba's Blue Ridge Spar Set To Reopen In July

Businessman James Makamba is set to reopen his Blue Ridge Spar in July after the government returned the complex on Maryvale Farm, Mazowe to him, The Herald reports.

In an interview with the publication, Dr Makamba spoke about the renovations taking place at the complex and said:

Work is in progress to make sure the complex will be ready for business in two months’ time. We are working with the relevant authorities to make sure that we operate within the confines of the law.

We are happy with the Government’s efforts to give back our empire so that we can start operating. We want to revamp Blue Ridge to ensure it comes back to its glorious days.

We want to create employment for the people in Mashonaland Central and Zimbabwe at large. The people will enjoy the best while passing through the complex.

We are currently cleaning the place and doing repairs to electrical fittings and plumbing. We want to restore the previous set up and add an events venue, service station and pharmacy plus a leisure centre

According to the publication:

During land reform, Dr Makamba was allocated the farm before he secured a loan of about $14 billion from CBZ focusing on earning foreign currency through horticulture.

Dr Makamba built a road to the shopping complex where Blue Ridge Spar was the main anchor store. When the complex was closed following Dr Makamba’s fallout with the then President, Mugabe, about 450 employees were also affected.
