MASVINGO – The Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, Saviour Kasukuwere has advised construction companies to get into joint ventures in order to strengthen their capacities and increase chances for their bids for large projects.
Speaking at the 2017 Construction Industry Federation of Zimbabwe congress and annual general meeting held at the Great Zimbabwe Hotel in Masvingo last week, Kasukuwere said there were big projects on the cards that required bigger capacities and some of them were the dualisation of the Harare-Beitbridge which was recently commissioned by President Mugabe, the rehabilitation of the country's road network which has been declared a national disaster, the construction of the new Parliament, the construction of 500 000 houses for civil servants, the expansion of Hwangwe Power Station and the planned construction of Batoka Hydro Power Station.
Kasukuwere was represented at the congress by the principal director in his Ministry, Rtd Colonel Joseph Mhakayakora.
 "The Government is encouraging you to form joint ventures and or consortia to improve on capacity where ever there is need even among yourselves," said
He also urged the contractors to work closely with local authorities in the rehabilitation of roads. He urged them to be part of the spirit to build Zimbabwe.
"Let me take this opportunity to encourage contractors to work closely with our local councils in the rehabilitation of our road network, which we declared a state of disaster. I urge you to please showcase your ability to build our nation.
"The Government is encouraging you to form joint ventures and or consortia to improve on capacity where ever there is need even among yourselves," said the principal director in the Ministry of Local Government, Rtd Colonel Joseph Mhakayakora.
He noted that the Ministry was expediting the enactment of the Construction Industry Council Bill which will among other things regulate the industry by ensuring registration and monitoring of construction companies in the country as well as protect them from unfair external competition.
"The Act is meant to protect the local contractors from external competition and/or encourage foreigners to have joint ventures or partnerships with local contractors. It is equally meant to protect the public from being short changed by fly by night and unscrupulous contractors," said Mhakayaora.
