Shurugwi town in Zimbabwe is to have a mall constructed from this month, a project expected to complement economic activities resulting from operations at the Unki mine in the area.

Last month, there were reports that the construction of the mall would be delayed until this month since the contractor was involved in a medical center in the town.

Unki mine is owned by Anglo American Platinum (Amplats), a major mining company in the country.
Inducto-Serve Construction Company is the contractor to undertake construction of the new mall, after signing up an agreement with the Shurugwi Town Council. The mall is expected to take a year to complete – it was expected to be complete by end of this November but now completion is set for next year November.

“It will take us a year to complete building the mall, and in the meantime the building material is available to begin the construction work,” said Solomon Siziba, the Shurugwi Town secretary.
In addition to committing US$400m to expanding Unki Mine, Amplats will also commit US$80m to spend on housing, power, water and health-related facilities in the country.

Zimbabwe was to construct the Mall of Zimbabwe from May this year. The mall would be developed by McCormick Property Development (MPD).
