Zimbabwe Passengers’ Association petitions Mugabe to cancel King Lion Bus Company’s operating licence

Zimbabwe Passengers’ Association (ZPA) petitioned President Robert Mugabe to cancel King Lion Bus Company’s operating licence due to the number of passengers that have died since the firm commenced operations. The petition was also directed at Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere and Transport minster Joram Gumbo.

ZPA secretary-general Paul Makiwa said government should intervene and suspend the bus company’s operating licence like what happened to Mutare-based B&C and Masvingo-based Mhunga bus companies. Said Makiwa:

What is now our worry, as passengers, is that in June 2014, one of this company’s buses claimed the lives of nine passengers. In June 2015, 11 passengers also perished in another accident. Sometime in June 2016, the death toll increased to 19. To our shock this year, in the same month of June, the death rate shot up the ladder to 43 passengers, adding up to 82 deaths in a span of four consecutive years. Let this not be acceptable.
