According to the article published by ZAPU secretary for transport P -Matsinhanise on the 10th of January 2017, the secretary raised main points which are affecting all Zimbabweans. Our transport department is not good at all motorists are driving in poor roads everyday. Railways, airports and pipelines are not up to standard.
The good part of it,ZAPU secretary stated how him and ZAPU will solve the problem when voted into power.This gives us hope as a troubled nation.
Joram Gumbo(ZANU) according to his statement released in response to ZAPU statement on the 11th of January 2017, he focused mainly on highways (Beitbridge - Harare, Beitbridge - Bulawayo, Bulawayo-Victoria falls, Nyamapanda Rutenga - Mozambique border, Mwenezi - Zvishavane).He also mentioned that his department will upgrade Harare international airport .
What about rural areas roads?,What about city centres, township roads, construction of bridges, railway lines, pipelines ?
May I question the honourable minister Joram Gumbo " Did you plan or budgeted only for highways and Harare airport ?.; Are you aware that also rural areas have a huge problem especially during rain season, motorists fail to cross rivers because of floods.The old type simple beam bridges are the main factor.If the transport department is serious, there would be many suspension bridges all over Zimbabwe.
What is the transport ministry going to do to the potholes which are all over Zimbabwe urban centres, is the ministry supervising Zinara and city councils well?.
Why is the ministry allowing ZANU to personalize ZUPCO buses?.
Please Fix Zimbabwe transport ministry and its infrastructure before we take our shovels and tools on our own to solve the problem.
