Chivayo reaches to Mnangagwa over solar project

Harare businessman Wicknell Chivayo has written to President Mnangagwa explaining circumstances that have caused delay in the implementation of a 300 megawatt State power utility solar farm project, awarded to his company Intratrek Zimbabwe, which has courted controversy over little progress since the tender was awarded in 2015.

There has been unending outrage from various quarters over the lack of progress in the Gwanda solar project following earlier revelations about $5,1 million of State resources were used to pay contractors without a bank guarantee while no progress had been registered.

However, Chivayo says his company has now completed 80 percent of pre-commencement works following the recent submission of a geo-tech survey report on the project, which was carried out at a cost of $686 000, reportedly clearing the outstanding balance of ZPC’s exposure from the $5,1 million.
