Chiwenga instigated cancelation of Beitbridge-Harare highway tender

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s decision to cancel Geiger International contract to dualise the Beitbridge-Harare-Chirundu highway was instigated by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s “serious protestations” over delays on the $2 billion project.

The development also comes as Transport minister Jorum Gumbo – has come under fire for his shoddy handling of affairs under his portfolio while analysts say the latest events point out to a vastly changing Zimbabwean political-economic environment.

While Mnangagwa twisted the knife in Geiger during a tour of Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Corporation in China last week, sources said the surprise announcement following complaints by Chiwenga to Gumbo who is also the Mberengwa West legislator – in December 2017 about the lack of progress on Zimbabwe’s busiest motorways.
