Govt Considers Stopping VID From Issuing Drivers’ Licences

Speaking during the fifth edition of the Road Safety Journalistic Awards on Friday in Harare, Transport and Infrastructure Development minister Joram Gumbo said Government is considering stopping the Vehicle Inspection Department (VID) from issuing drivers’ licences as a measure to curb corruption.

Said Gumbo:

My ministry will not hesitate to descend heavily on culprits implicated in soliciting for bribes and giving bribes in order to obtain a licences to drive a motor vehicle in Zimbabwe. Such corruption must be condemned in the strongest of terms. The problem is at VID and I am against what is happening there. We need to come up with a new department that issues out driver’s licences, there is need for competition and this will bring order at VID, that way we can win.

Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -

Gumbo also said VID would soon lose relevance if corruption persists.
