Motor Industry slams Mudenda over proposal to hike import duty of second-hand cars to 150 percent

Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda has been slammed for suggesting that the import duty for second-hand cars should be raised to 150 percent when the country is not building any vehicles. Motor Industry Association of Zimbabwe (MIAZ) president Luckson Gwara said:

I am not sure what way he (Mudenda) wants to go about it, whether it is in sync with what we crafted as the Motor Industry Development Policy, because I have not read his statements.

But, our view is that, while we attend to this, we still need to allow people to be able to drive vehicles.

Obviously, the vehicles they are importing are much cheaper than anywhere else and in any case, we are not building (sic) any vehicles, so it is more to do with controlling.
