The Zimbabwe National Road Administration (ZINARA), has reverted back to its mandate to avoid the leakage of finances from the parastatal.
Speaking in Mukumbura last week, ZINARA board chairman Engineer Michael Madanha said:
We stamped our authority and made it clearly understood that Zinara does not implement road projects, but only disburses money and monitors evaluation, apart from collecting road user fees.

Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
By implementing this, we eliminated more than 50 per cent of the problems at Zinara. Since 2011, Zinara was implementing road construction projects which itself was an extra function.
What is now happening is that Zinara will tender the works, do bid evaluation, they will appoint contractors and assign contractors and they will deploy them to the provinces to work with local authorities and do the auditing and monitoring and evaluation.
