Local Government, Rural and Urban Development Minister, Dr Ignatius Chombo has nullified the Chinhoyi Municipalityâ€™s decision to re-tender the townâ€™s sewer rehabilitation.
Chinhoyi Town Council rejected the winning bidders that had been identified by the municipalityâ€™s engineers.
Dr Chombo has given the tender to initial bidders recommended by a consultant to do the project, adding that the tender was done above board.
Meanwhile, Dr Chombo has appointed Makonde District Administrator, Mr Webster Tembo as Chinhoyi Acting Town Clerk.
Dr Chombo also ordered the council to pay wages due to workers and ensure that it presents its 2012 budget proposal to the Ministry before Christmas.
