Isa. 59:19;’ When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” NKJV
During our time of prayer and waiting on God for His plans and purposes for the nation of South Africa in 2013 we received this word regarding Transnet. For the complete word click the link below.
During 2013 we will see Transnet go into a phase of transitioning and revamping, starting 2013 a lot of the rail networks will be restored. There will be a major upgrade of the people carrying coaches as a renewed focus on railway travel will commence.”
Transnet says locomotives deal was fair:
STATE-owned logistics group Transnet on Thursday said it was confident of the “fairness” and “openness” of the processes that led to the awarding of a R2.6bn contract for 95 electric locomotives to a Chinese manufacturer.
The Public Protector is to investigate the deal with Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Company, a subsidiary of CSR Corporation, after a complaint was lodged in December by the Cape Town-based Workers International Vanguard League.
The Marxist league compared the Transnet contract to a similar Chinese train tender in Namibia that also drew the attention of graft-busters.
Last year, Transnet awarded the tender for the supply of the locomotives to a consortium comprising Zhuzhou and local black economic empowerment (BEE) consortium Matsetse Basadi. Zhuzhou will get 70% of the deal and the remainder will go to the local consortium.
The deal, which marked the first time Transnet had procured locomotives from a Chinese manufacturer of original equipment, is part of a R300bn upgrade to railways and ports to overcome freight bottlenecks.
The first 10 locomotives will be assembled in China and delivered by December 2013.
Please Pray For:
- Continuation of Investments into South Africa
- Godly Managment of these Projects
Let us then raise the standard in Prayer
