The Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Development Joel Biggie Matiza on Tuesday dissolved the Central Mechanical and Equipment Department (CMED) board, the Zim Morning Post claims.
According to the report, Matiza wrote a letter to the board members advising them of the decision which he reached after consultation with the President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
A copy of the letter which is dated March 5, 2019, reads in part:
Following due consultations with His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, it has been agreed that the Board of Directors for (CMED) (Pvt) Ltd be dissolved. The dissolution is with immediate effect.
The CMED has made headlines for the wrong reasons recently after it allegedly hired six luxury vehicles to the Ministry of Mines executives at a cost of $24 000 per month.
