Companies Under Mutapa Investment Fund Not Exempted From Public Procurement Laws - Guvamatanga

The Government has rejected claims that all Government parastatals under the recently promulgated Mutapa Investment Fund will not be subject to the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Act (PPDPA).

Addressing delegates during the Zimbabwe Economic Development Conference (ZEDCON 2023) in Victoria Falls on Monday, Finance, Economic Development and Investment Promotion permanent secretary George Guvamatanga said the entities have not been exempted from public procurement regulations. He said:

They (entities) have not been exempted. To be clear, in terms of the law, the exemption applies to the fund and not any other entities listed.

All this noise of all institutions being exempted is not correct. The fund needs to be quick, cost effect and it was important to place it at par with its peers.

Guvamatanga said the fund is wholly owned by the Government and it (the Government) is the beneficiary of the fund.
