Minister Warns Touts, Says They Can Get 6 Months For Hanging On Kombis
Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, Joram Gumbo has warned touts that they risk spending six months in prison for hanging on the back of commuter omnibuses. Speaking at the commissioning of a Traffic Safety Training Centre at Hurungwe Primary School in Murewa on Monday, Gumbo said
I want to appeal to the commandant of ZRP Murewa district not to hesitate to arrest and prosecute those people who hang precariously on kombis. I was shocked to see some of them standing on tow hitches on the highway, where kombis can gain speeds of up to 80km per hour or more. Section 58 of the Road Traffic Act (Chapter 13:11) is instructive in this regard. The penalty provision is up to $200 fine and or up to six months imprisonment. Conductors and other culprits, you have been warned.
