July Moyo – Minister of Local Government and Public Works,
Speaking to ZBC News during an assessment exercise of health facilities in Bulawayo on Saturday, the Minister of Local Government and Public Works Cde July Moyo said for private transport operators to be classified as official service providers they have to register with Zupco so that they can operate during the lockdown period.
“We have talked to Zupco management to say in order for commuter omnibuses (kombis) to be on the road they should surrender under ZUPCO so it can be managed as one. All we are trying to do is organise so that we have proper transportation networks. When the President announced the lockdown he said official business will remain open. Official business is one that is paying tax. We must slowly as a country go back to that system. We don’t want our kombi operators to die of hunger. The kombi remains yours. Zupco brands it and gives it routes. Same applies to those with buses,”
Meanwhile, ZUPCO has donated over 2 million Zimbabwean dollars towards the fight to curb the COVID-19 pandemic. -zbc
