Transport Minister Lauds Transformed ZINARA

Transport Minister Lauds Transformed ZINARA

Transport and Infrastructural Development minister Felix Mhona said that the Zimbabwe National Road Administration (ZINARA) is now sticking to its mandate of collecting and disbursing funds.

Speaking to journalists at the end of the tour of the Harare-Beitbridge highway on Saturday, Mhona lauded ZINARA board chairman George Manyaya for steering the parastatal back on course. He said:

Contrary to what has been happening where ZINARA was involved in construction works, I am happy to say that this is no more.

Others when they heard he [Manyaya] is the new chairman, they were wondering whether the youthful executive would lead ZINARA. He has succeeded.

ZINARA has in the past courted controversy after a forensic audit of the parastatal unearthed corporate governance deficit leading to the abuse of public resources.

A parliamentary portfolio committee report also revealed that ZINARA had recruited unqualified people without a process of public interviews, public scrutiny and public competition.

Mhona said ZINARA had become associated with the abuses of public funds and he enjoyed grilling the ZINARA team every time they appeared before a parliamentary portfolio committee. He added:

I am happy that the narrative has changed.
