The troubled airline is among dozens of state-owned firms, known locally as parastatals, that are set to be partially or fully privatized in the next 9 months as the government seeks to cut its fiscal deficit seen at 11 percent of GDP this year.
Air Zimbabwe administrator Reggie Saruchera said in a notice published in newspapers on Monday that potential investors should make their bids before Nov. 23 after paying a non-refundable deposit of $20,000. ■
