Bill to Regulate Construction Industry On Cards in Zimbabwe

By Cyril Zenda

PLAYERS in the construction industry are engaging government to bring about a law that would regulate the sector.

Both the Construction Industry Federation of Zimbabwe (CIFoZ) and the Zimbabwe Building Contractors' Association (ZBCA), confirmed to the Financial Gazette's Property that they have been working together to push for a Bill that would result in the regulation of the construction sector.

CIFoZ chief executive officer, Martin Chingaira, said after wide consultations, CIFoZ had together with the ZBCA, submitted a draft Bill to the Ministry of Public Works and National Housing's legal department.

He said the Bill had, to his knowledge, been passed on to the Attorney General's office for further scrutiny and refinement.
