Zimbabwe: Tokwe-Murkosi Dam Construction Stalls Again

[Financial Gazette]FOR the umpteenth time, construction of the country's largest inland water reservoir, Tokwe-Murkosi Dam, has stalled due to non-payment of the contractor, Salini-Impregilo Joint Venture. Work at the site started in 1998, but was suspended in 1999 due to lack of funds. Construction resumed in 2001 but went through a stop-start process until 2005. Treasury later allocated funds for the project during the inclusive government era in 2010.
