MASVINGO – The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Transport which has noted that roads in the country are in a bad state and that most of them are beyond their lifespans plans to engage mining companies for the resuscitation of the road network.
This could be an important way of making the mining companies plough back into the communities.
Speaking to The Mirror in an interview, the Committee chairperson, Dexter Nduna said Government does not have resources to repair roads and an alternative is to approach mining companies.
"I am quite aware of the fact that the committee is interrogating mine houses on the reconstruction and maintenance of road network in their areas. The road network is dilapidated and life spans have expired and this calls for nothing less than $5 billion to resuscitate. We need to interrogate the issue of companies that are exporting resources like platinum and gold without ploughing back to the country"
"These companies should contribute to the improvement of the country`s road infrastructure because our resources which they are taking outside are precious. We are in the process of putting modalities in place to ensure that these companies contribute to projects which benefit the nation," said Nduna.
