Ban Use Of Secondhand Tyres, Resuscitate Tyre Manufacturing Industry: Passengers Urge Govt

The Passenger Association of Zimbabwe (PAZ) has urged the Government to ban the use of second-hand tyres on public service vehicles.

The proposal follows the death of 17 people in a road accident along the Harare-Nyamapanda highway on Sunday.  PAZ president Mr Tafadzwa Goliati called for the ban, while extending condolences to the bereaved families. Goliati said Government should help resuscitate the tyre manufacturing industry. Said Goliati:

As PAZ we call upon Government to act decisively on the ban on second-hand tyres and they should also ensure that as a nation we are able to manufacture affordable tyres that suit our climate and road conditions. Government must actively help resuscitate Apollo (formerly Dunlop) in Bulawayo. In this case the cause was a tyre burst. Commuter omnibus owners must consistently ensure that their vehicles are roadworthy. Commuter omnibus operators must also desist from giving kombi crews targets that are very difficult to meet, which leads to overloading and speeding
