The recapitalisation of the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) is beginning to take shape with a top official confirming that the parastatal has begun servicing at least two locomotives a month while attracting experienced staff who had left the state owned  institution for perceived greener pastures.

NRZ Workshops Chief Engineer, Daniso Mlambo told the ZBC News that the parastatal is experiencing exciting times with skilled personnel now coming back to work at the institution.

Engineer Mlambo added that he hopes the conclusion of the Diaspora Infrastructure Development Group (DIDG)-Transnet consortium deal will see the parastatal significantly improving on its capacity utilisation as it will provide fresh capital to the institution.

The government recently approved the NRZ-DIDG partnership deal which shall see the partner chipping in with an initial $400 million for the first phase of the recapitalisation of the state owned institution.
