MUTARE — Vehicle assemblers want State-owned commuter bus company, the Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (ZUPCO), to procure new buses locally.
ZUPCO chief executive officer, Clifford Muwoni, said in press reports recently that the company had dispatched teams to Brazil and South Africa to scout for new buses.
Zimbabwe has four vehicle assembly firms. These are Deven Engineering, Willowvale Mazda Motors Industries (WMMI), Quest Motor Corporation (QMC) and AVM Africa. Deven, which assembles heavy vehicles, is a unit of WMMI, which makes small vehicles.   – By Kenneth Matimaire

    Makes sense to me all government departments should keep jobs at home not export jobs to Brazil and South Africa. How do we call in investors and then shun their products, what happened with the Chief’s Isuzus should never be repeated if we are really open for business. USA has made noise about promoting jobs at home and why not us?

        Where then do they get the money to buy cars outside the country for chiefs if they are broke? I thought the broke country would keep the money internally while supporting local industries helping employment so I do not understand the broke part but CORRUPT yes I am with you and could be the reason of buying outside
