Addressing delegates at the 2022 Buy Zimbabwe  Public Procurement Conference and Awards held in the capital yesterday, Minister of Transport and Infrastructural development Felix Mhona said the ministry is not getting calls from women as well as people with disabilities demanding for road rehabilitation.

“We are saying we’ve got a quarter for women, we’ve got a quarter for youths, and a quarter with disabilities but we’re not finding people coming upfront.

“This is my plea,   I’m waiting for you to come up to also demand to rehabilitate our roads. This is now again a humble plea where we can form up very vibrant businesses as women, youths, and those with disabilities so that you partake in the exercise of rebuilding our infrastructure,” he said
