'While Zimbabwe was promoting quail birds this is what Zambia was doing' - OPINION

While Zim government authorities were slumbering, politicking, vomiting financial jargon that never helped us, promoting zvihuta and 1:1 nonsense, fuelling corruption and command agriculture (only to import maize and wheat as well as soya crude oil), Zambia was busy constructing the Kazungula Bridge, an economic gateway for trucks from South Africa going to Zambia and DRC via Botswana, while bypassing ZimbabweAs soon as the bridge became operational, Zambia announces that, the Victoria Falls bridge can no longer be used by truckers going to DRC or Zambia. Their reasons are that they want to get rid of noise, caused by trucks in their tourist town of Livingstone


As it was solely designed and developed for that purpose, and that they want to maintain the lifespan of the bridge and it's structural intergrity. The bridge can now only be used by small cars and trains carrying goods and passengers


Our own NRZ is dead to provide this service and Zambia knows that very well, that is why they want the bridge to be exclusively used by trains for trade purposes. Those dinosaur locomotives commissioned deal later cancelled as per some media reports


Will never give Zim the much needed forex. We were outwitted smartly whilst the likes of Matemadanda and cabal, were busy propagandizing everything doing nothing for the development, of this nation


Zimbabwe cannot object or oppose Zambia's move. Its a stalemate for Zimbabwe as they will see a decline in revenue collected by ZIMRA, at Beit Bridge and the Victoria Falls border posts. Trucks that preffered to use that route will now be forced to use Kazungula Bridge, which means they will go via Botswana by passing Zim


ZINARA is also bound to see its piece of toll-fees being cut down, as these trucks will no longer use our aged roads that have been neglected for decades. Businesses will also feel the heat. Truckers were customers to both formal and informal traders, at ports of entry and along the way


Economics is all about outwitting your enemies or competitors. It's about strategizing, and this is where our authorities were caught unawares by Zambia. Zambia invested its money where its interests were. The delays at Beitbridge, accompanied by corruption and roadblocks, will make many trucking companies to avoid Zim.
