Harare City Council has bought 25 (Hyundai 110i) vehicles for revenue collection purposes on a three year credit facility. Council is owed in excess of US$550 million by its various customers.
The vehicles were bought through a public tender. Each of the vehicles cost US$24 116. The lowest bid was awarded.
Previously council hired vehicles for revenue collection but that proved to be unsustainable and expensive.
In addition council will this week award a tender for the purchase of another 17 service delivery one tonne trucks.
Very soon we will again award another tender for the purchase of 20 refuse compactors.
“We have also tendered for various pieces of equipment for road maintenance. Our existing fleet across the board is now old and making it difficult for us to discharge our service delivery mandate. We will from time to time renew our fleet in line with our vision of becoming a world Class City by 2025”.
