July Moyo In Another Scandalous Deal

Minister July Moyo

Local Government Minister, July Moyo has been implicated in another big scandal after it emerged that he ordered the procurement of fire fighting vehicles from Belarus at allegedly inflated prices on behalf of local authorities.

In a letter to city and town councils supposedly from the local government permanent secretary’s office, the Ministry indicated that it was procuring fire tenders from Belarus whose authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko is a close ally of Mnangagwa.

“The funds to procure the equipment will be deducted from the 2022 Devolution allocations and done over twelve months starting March 2022. the cost of each fire tender is USD464,296.

“It is therefore advisable for local authorities to reprioritise the Devolution funds to accommodate the cost of the fire tenders.”

Moyo has become notorious for bullying local councils after recently entering a dodge deal which would see Harare City Council paying, millions of dollars for the use of the Pomona dumpsite.

He is also on the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC)  investigations list over US$9,3 million scandals involving the rehabilitation of pumps at Harare’s Morton Jeffrey Water Works in 2019.
