Burma car wash owner and Sarago CEO Chiza Gondwe has added a Rolls Royce Wraith to his luxury vehicle collection.
The car vehicle which costs an estimated US$322,500 (K6,843,459.32) was bought by Gondwe who was in October last year awarded a US$1million tender to supply the Judiciary with 46 vehicles.
Kennedy Gondwe writes:
Yet again, Chiza Gondwe, my young brother is at the center of falsehoods after his company – Serago General Dealers – won a tender to supply vehicles to the Judiciary of the Republic of Zambia.
Here are a few facts:
1. To this day, Serago General Dealers, has not received any penny from the government for the cars in question. Infact, Serago General Dealers has NOT even yet signed the contract for the supply of the cars.
Instead, the company has taken a business risk and proceeded to procure the cars, using its other resources as it awaits the sign of the contract and the subsequent payment. The decision to go ahead and procure the cars for the Judiciary (even before money exchanged hands) was to further show capacity to deliver and impress a new client – the government.
Some the vehicles (Nissan Hard Bodies and not Landcruisers as it has been erroneously reported) have already started arriving in the country. It must be noted this is the FIRST time that Serago General Dealers is conducting business with the Government of the Republic of Zambia.
2. Chiza Gondwe is not a politician. The Rolls Royce in question was actually bought a long time ago, way before Serago General Dealers won the tender for the Judiciary. Records are there to prove this fact. At the same time that Chiza Gondwe bought the Rolls Royce, he also bought himself a McLaren.
3. There is a thin line where we run the risk of being misunderstood as show off, but for the avoidance of any doubt and in setting the record straight, we have taken this unprecedented move to share the cars, which are a private property, with the public to show that Chiza Gondwe has long collected cars as per his hobby.
The following are some of the cars Chiza Gondwe owns:
Lexus sc 430
JEEP SRT 8
Mercedes SL 65 Black series
