Government Has Plans To Resuscitate The Gwanda Solar Project – Zhemu Soda

One of the newest ministers in President Mnangagwa’s cabinet  Zhemu Soda has revealed that the government is reportedly planning to resuscitate the controversial Gwanda solar project aimed at contributing 100 MW of electricity to the national grid, The Herald reports.

Soda revealed this during an interview after he commissioned the Rural Electrification Project in Silobela when he told reporters that:

Government has plans to resuscitate the project following a Cabinet position on engagements between Intratek and Zesa Holdings in order to bring the gwanda Solar Project back on track.

What I can just confirm for now is that the two parties have constituted themselves into some working committees. They have set up legal, finance and technical committees that are meant to oversee the resuscitation of the programme.

The technical committee is the one that will try and find a way forward on how to pick up the project from where it had ended and give it new life

The solar project was given another green light by the cabinet which ordered Wicknell Chivayo’s company to declare financial capacity to carry out at least 10% of the project under the new contract which will be done in a phased approach.
