Motor Vehicle Mechanics

Zimbabwe reported a 36% jump in the number of imported vehicles in 2011. This surge comes on the back of reduced excise duty in the 2011 budget and the relative economic stability in the dollarized economy. The majority of the imported vehicles are second hand cars from Japan and Singapore. Use of informal motor vehicle mechanics to maintain and repair imported second hand cars has become extensive because for most people licensed franchises are very expensive and some of these companies are reluctance to service some of the older models of their brands because they fail to obtain genuine spares. Opportunities exist for youth with motor vehicle mechanical skills in testing, repair and maintenance of second hand vehicles. Our QIA program is supporting youth working under Master Craftpersons in Chitungwiza to harness on-the-job motor vehicle mechanical skills for wage and self employment.
