Wicknell Chivayo’s Chinese Partners Barred From Accessing Funds By AfDB For Fraud

Wicknell Chivayo’s foreign partners in the Gwanda solar project, CHiNT Electric, have been barred from accessing funds for three years by the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) due to fraudulent activities.

Representatives from CHiNT electric were expected in Zimbabwe this week to renegotiate some of the terms of the $200 million Gwanda solar project contract. In a statement, AfDB said CHiNT had engaged in numerous fraudulent activities in bidding for a number of power projects AfDB had financed. AfDB has imposed a 3 year debarment on CHiNT Electric although the period may be reduced to 24 months if the firm complies with all conditions of the agreement early.

During the debarment period, CHiNT Electric is ineligible to be awarded contracts under any AfDB financed project or to be a sub-contractor. AfDB says CHiNT Electric has worked on other projects in Zimbabwe where they misrepresented the technical specifications, value, execution period and/or the degree of completion of contracts used as credentials in order to qualify for the tenders.

  1. I am not sure why the media is still splashing news about a criminal who should be behind bars by now. I am not really sure why the government and parastatals’ procurement systems include the past performance as one the criteria for awarding contracts. The big and obsess boy boasts of being connected to the military junta. He should be locked up. I will not surprised if he does become a candidate for the junta’s party. This misuse of resources is what is fueling inflation because Chivayo got paid but without productivity. ZESA is crying to raise tariffs yet they are throwing money to a fraudster who is boasting about the pairs of shoes. The big obsess Mpofu cannot walk because of chewing diamond mine. Where is Zimbabwe heading to. Cry beloved country. Vakafa havana chavaona. Maurice Nyagumbo commited suicide for one or two Cressidas which can not compared with what we are seeing now over the military government and deposed dictactor.
