It is still not clear if that building is the only structure built by Zimbabwe as part of the Dry Port. No other picture of any other structure has surfaced so far. We will update this article if we get more information.
The Dry Port was constructed for $3.5 million according to officials. Here is how Zimbos reacted to the cost of erecting the Dry Port.
Mnangagwa opens dry port in Namibia, but is this building really worth US$3.5m?https://t.co/4alxq4lPPD

USD3,4mil wasn’t just the cost of the building!!
A Dry Port isn’t just a building.
There is Services Infrastructure which incl. sewer, water, electricity and roads which had to be pulled from mainlines as this was virgin land. pic.twitter.com/j5pNklLjtx

Botswana built a state of the art dry port in the same area for US$5.3m which is double the size of Zimbabwe’s at 36 200 sq meters. Botswana removed all the top soil and brought foreign soil for stability! Used precast walls as well. All that to say NO it’s not worth US$3.5m! https://t.co/EGByCQ2CV8

There are those whose central job is to mainly defend & explain things on behalf the regime, can they tell us how this dry port building cost Zimbabwe US$3.5Million to build? The land on which it was built on was donated by the Namibian Government, so it is not part of the $3.5. pic.twitter.com/eyKyjoCQr1
