The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development Funds Emergency Infrastructure Work

Sept. 10, 2021

Karoi-Binga road: "building a proper modern road with the next US$ 10 million tranches of cash now released". Seke road & Mbudzi-flyover & Kudzanai bus terminus in the city. The emergency work now in progress, under Government contracts rather than on municipal contracts, should have been done by the council years ago. The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development is prepared, on this particular bit of infrastructure, to allow borrowing to bring forward the work. But under our strict fiscal discipline and prudent financial rules it has insisted on seeing a practical and realistic proposal linking a guaranteed revenue stream to the loans so that they will be paid back, on time.
