Gov’t Prepares Locally Assembled Cars for Officials 




The government announced that it prepared 50 locally-assembled vehicles as replacements for the high-powered vehicles of senior government officials.

The replacements are 2,000cc automobiles supplied by Belayab Motors Plc. The vehicles, procured by Public Procurement & Property Disposal Service, cost the government 1.1 million Br each and are five times cheaper than Toyota Land Cruiser V8s.

A few months back, Belayab Motors won a tender for the supply of 400 vehicles to be used by high-ranking officials.

The Ministry of Finance & Economic Cooperation issued a directive that restricts government officials from using high-powered vehicles such as V8s, G-9s, Nissan Pajeros and Toyota Prados in the capital. Although the directive was issued last year it was not put into effect until now.

Beginning this week, state ministers, speakers of the parliament, presidents and deputy presidents of the federal high court, police commissioners and deputy commissioners are barred from using V8 (8-cylinder) and Prado 4-cylinder cars in urban areas.
