Mthuli Ncube proposes removal of 2nd-hand vehicles from Open General Import Licence





 Finance Minister Prof Mthuli Ncube has proposed the removal of second-hand motor vehicles aged 10 years and above, from the date of manufacture at the time of importation, from the Open General Import Licence.

 Prof Mthuli Ncube said this while presented a ZWL$421.6 billion budget on Thursday.

 "Mr Speaker Sir, about US$1.3 billion was spent on imported buses, light commercial and passenger motor vehicles from 2015 to September 2020. This is despite the existence of capacity by the local motor industry to assemble the above-mentioned range of motor vehicles. Furthermore, due to lack of effective standards and regulation, road unworthy vehicles, which, in some instances fail to meet environmental and safety standards, find their way onto the market.

 "In line with the NDS1, which underscores value addition, I propose to remove second-hand motor vehicles aged 10 years and above, from the date of manufacture at the time of importation, from the Open General Import Licence. In the interim, commercial vehicles such as tractors, haulage trucks, earth-moving equipment and other specialised vehicles used in mining and construction will be exempt from this requirement," said Ncube.

 Most of Zimbabwe’s imports are on Open General Import Licence (OGIL) and do not require import licences or permits.
