Consider local firms for road project

WHILE we are preoccupied with the noise from the political parties as 2023 nears, the Chinese are quietly tightening their grip on Zimbabwe by grabbing mining claims and every mountain to extract black granite.

I don't hold anything against Chinese companies, but this is one project that should have been awarded to a local company, which in turn could have subcontracted foreign firms given the scale of funding and earthworks involved.

Way back in the 1980s, I remember a local company Gulliver Construction, did a good job of dualising the Chitungwiza-Harare Highway and the road is still in perfect condition.

If the company is still operational, it should have been awarded the Beitbridge-Harare-Chirundu Road project and jobs could have been created, while our money would have remained in the country.
