By A Correspondent- Local Bus manufacturer AVM has been roped in, to manufacture assemble 300 Buses, the state media reports.
The 300 out of the 500 busses from Belarus will be designed for the local terrain especially for the rural areas In Zimbabwe.
This was revealed by the Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister July Moyo who spoke to the publication and said:
I requested that of the 500 that are being procured, some have to be assembled here because my view was that the type of the body of the bus was not suitable for rural areas. We wanted to modify the body so that it can suit our terrain.
The remaining 200 buses will come from Belarus where the president made the deal earlier this year to have 500 buses from Belarus in a bid to revamp mass public transportation in Zimbabwe.
