Harare, Geogenix BV Issue Joint Statement On Pomona Waste To Power Project

Harare, Geogenix BV Issue Joint Statement On Pomona Waste To Power Project

The City of Harare and Geo Pomona Waste Management (Private) Limited have issued a joint statement on the Pomona dumpsite project to update members of the public on the project. Reads the statement:

It is in the public interest that we jointly issue this statement, primarily to update the general public, but also to avert any misinformation on the developments at the Pomona Dumpsite.

The City of Harare concluded a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) Joint Venture Agreement with Geogenix B.V. on the 9th of March 2022, with a contractual lifespan of thirty (30) years.

The key components of this BOOT Agreement and therefore this Project are as follows:

1). Encapsulation of the existing landfill 2). Internal infrastructure works (utilities, roads, drainage) 3). Construction of a new landfill 4). Construction of a wastewater treatment plant 5). Construction of a biogas plant 6). Construction of a recycling plant 7). Construction of a waste-to-energy plant 8). Construction of a recreation area within the landfill 9). Management of the entire waste treatment area

This Project will completely transform the Pomona Dumpsite into a modern urban waste management facility for the City of Harare and its residents, elevating the city’s urban waste disposal capabilities to modern standards. The benefits of such a milestone, if allowed and supported by all stakeholders, are extensive.

Geo Pomona Waste Management (Private) Limited is the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) carrying out the Project. Following fulfilment of the conditions precedent in terms of the contract, the Pomona Dumpsite was officially handed over by the City of Harare to Geo Pomona on the 28th of April 2022.

There was agreed joint management of the dumpsite by both the City of Harare and Geo Pomona up until the 20th of May 2022 from which date, Geo Pomona attained full control and management of the Dumpsite.

All private parties active in waste collection are at liberty to engage with Geo Pomona Waste Management (Private) Limited on the modalities of how their relationship with it can progress going forward. Geo Pomona is ready to work with all stakeholders in the interests of this Project.

The Project was necessary in order to address all concerns raised by the various stakeholders and to adopt best practice and modern technology consistent with world standards. The Project deserves the support of all of us.

The project came under heavy criticism from the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa which describes the deal as bad for Harare. 

CCC legislator for Harare North Constituency, Allan Markham, has since taken Harare City Council to court over the deal with Geogenix BV.

I do not want to comment more than that the period of Build, Own, Operate, Transfer [ BOOT ] seems to be long and that there seems to be no arrangements for conflict resolutions in future. [ VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].
