Government awards One Million Dollars contract to a Lusaka car wash to supply vehicles to the Judiciary.The Zambian Government has awarded a little known Car Wash business based in Kabwata in Lusaka a 1 million United States dollars contract to deliver 46 brand new 4×4 vehicles to the Judiciary.Burma Car Wash which also was trading as Sarago General Dealers got the lucrative deal after beating well established motor vehicle firms such as Toyota Zambia, Southern Cross Motors and Hazida Motors including Tata Zambia.According to tender documents obtained by Mafken FM Radio, the Judiciary Chief Procurement and Supplies Officer Patrick Mwale has written a notice that Sarago General Dealers was the best evaluated bidder for the supply of 46 4×4 Double Cab motor vehicles after it offered a million dollars as the total bid sum.According to the tender requirements, Sarago General Dealers is to deliver the said vehicles within two to four weeks from November 10th, 2020 the date on which the tender was awarded. A brand new Double Cab sells at the market price of around US$ 32,000 meaning government would need to spend over 1 point 4 million dollars to procure the 46 vehicles, which was well over the contract sum.But the awarding of a huge contract to a Car Wash business has shocked Zambians.Opposition Third Liberation Movement Leader Enoch Tonga has asked the Anti Corruption Commission to investigate the matter particularly that they are assertions that the said car wash that has won the tender is lined to a named Cabinet Minister
