As confusion on why Zambia and Botswana governments are not acknowledging Zimbabwe as a partner in the Kazungula Bridge project whose commissioning is set for today, Presidential spokesperson George Charamba has disclosed that the country needs to pay a third of the total cost of the project.
Charamba says doing so would up the country’s stake in the project.
Posting on his ghost Twitter account, @Jamwanda, Charamba said negotiations are currently underway, and will see the development of the Border Facility on the Zimbabwean side, as well as the widening of the Kasane-Victoria Falls City Road.
HIS EXCELLENCY THE PRESIDENT, CDE E.D. MNANGAGWA, is now in Kasane where the day will see the official launch of the Tri-National Kazungula Bridge.
Zimbabwe re-joined the project after the Second Republic and is expected to meet a third of the total costs of the facility to back up its stake.
Negotiations are currently underway, and will entail development of Border Facility on the Zimbabwean side, as well as the widening of the Kasane-Victoria Falls City Road.
Victoria Falls city is a key destination for the area.
