My kombi shall be operating on the Mbizo Via Zimasco to town Route. It has already started. Kukwira mahara.
This follows a similar initiative but aspiring member of parliament (MP) for Budiriro, Godfrey Gomwe who hired 60 commuter omnibuses to ferry people tback and forth from Budiriro 1, 2, 4 and 5 and the central business district. The free transport programme for Budiiriro happens on select days and will run until election day. Speaking to H-Metro, Gomwe said,
We started this on Monday but we have decided that we do it on selected days. So we approached about 60 kombis that operate in Budiriro and paid them for the whole day on Monday.
It was free transport for Budiriro residents that day. But after it emerged that there were cases were passengers, who were unaware, would be asked to pay we decided to have specific days for the promotion where we would have notified all people.
