Wicknell Chivayo Has Criminal Record, Terminate Gwanda Solar Project Contract: MPs Urge ZPC

The Parliamentary Committee on Mines and Energy urges the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) to terminate its contract with Intratrek immediately as one of its directors, Mr Wicknell Chivayo, has a criminal record and does not qualify to be a managing director of a company registered in Zimbabwe.

The Parliamentary Committee on Mines and Energy’s report after conducting hearings on the Gwanda Solar Project recommended that power generation tenders should be awarded on merit. The Temba Mliswa led committee recommends that ZPC should terminate its contract with Intratrek because the company violates the Companies Act and the repealed Procurement Act. Part of the report reads:

ZPC should terminate the contract with Intratrek given that that Mr Chivayo has a criminal record and does not qualify to be a managing director of a registered company in Zimbabwe. ZPC must take over the Project.

The committee said the Zesa Holdings Board and the ZPC Board should be dissolved immediately.
