According to Team Pachedu, a network of citizens that strive to inculcate the spirit of transparency, responsibility and accountability by all public officials without fear or favour, it will take 166 years to construct the road from Chirundu to Beitbridge.
In a post on Twitter, Team Pachedu bemoaned the snail pace at which the construction of roads is being done by the government. It said:
The government has taken 8 months to construct a 3.6km section of the Masvingo-Harare road just after Beatrice.
There is no bridge, the road is not rocky. Just a plain patch. At this rate, it will take 55 yrs to reach Masvingo and 166 yrs from Chirundu to Beitbridge.
