Council, Hold Your Horses


[The Herald]Farirai Machivenyika -Harare municipal officials have on different occasions confirmed that equipment for the US$144,4 million loan deal for rehabilitation of the city's water and sewerage works have already been bought, contrary to repeated claims this week that they were still to purchase anything. The denial by the city on Wednesday, and in adverts it is now flighting in the local media, follow revelations by The Herald that an assessment of the deal shows equipment prices were inflated to the tune of up to US$100 million.
