Kwekwe City Council Fails To Account For Road Rehabilitation Funds

Kwekwe City Council Fails To Account For Road Rehabilitation Funds

Kwekwe city council has failed to account for millions of dollars disbursed to it under the Emergency Road Rehabilitation Programme (ERRP2).

Kwekwe received ZW$68 258 834.18 from the Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (ZINARA) and accepted bids for the rehabilitation of selected roads from two Harare-based companies Zada Construction and Birthday Construction.

NewZimbabwe.com reports that both companies, whose addresses of operation were fake, failed to deliver even after full payment was confirmed.

Speaking after touring some of the roads being rehabilitated under the ERRP2, deputy minister of transport Mike Madiro said they were now working on tightening their system to shut out contractors who have been taking advantage of gaps within the system. He said:

We are experiencing challenges with some contractors in terms of their quality of work.

We want to ensure that we tighten our systems in terms of tendering, I think that is a problem in the system. We have a problem of fly by night contractors who want to take advantage of our weak systems in terms of identifying those with the capacity to do the works.

I think that has been identified and I am happy that action is already being taken to make sure that contracts are terminated.

Madiro said the government was working on blacklisting all companies which do not deliver value for the money they would have been paid.

How do you pay for a job that has not been done? Where in this world are people paid at the beginning of the month for the job to be done the following month?

If you have systems that can leak so much then you are excessively incompetent to be the gvt of this country otherwise we should blame the electorate that voted for you
