New locos and waggons for NRZ on lease

New locos and waggons for NRZ on lease
Published: 20 February 2018
Locomotives, wagons and coaches delivered by the Diaspora Infrastructure Development Group (DIDG) to National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ), under a $400 million deal, are on lease while new ones are expected in the near future, Transport and Infrastructure Development Minister Jorum Gumbo has said.

Minister Gumbo said this last week while responding to enquiries by The Herald Business on how the equipment supplied by DIDG would be deployed at a time when other NRZ critical infrastructure was not in the best condition to optimize benefits from the capacity the wagons and locos have created.

He said the equipment that has been delivered thus far and the others set to be delivered in the next few weeks were part of the initial phase of the recapitalization of NRZ, but the whole programme also covered areas such as track, signalling and communication system rehabilitation, among others.
