In a statement, the Minister of Transport and Infrastructural Development, Joel Biggie Matiza said Government will cancel registration for close to 150 000 vehicles.
Matiza said once the intention to cancel registration of unlicensed vehicles was gazetted yesterday, the affected owners should approach Zinara and clear their licence arrears within 30 days. Affected motorists can inspect a schedule available on the Zinara website and a physical hardcopy shall be availed for inspection at the post offices and the Central Vehicle Registry offices. Part of Matiza’s statement reads:
My ministry is reliably informed that at the beginning of the month, there were more than 150 000 vehicles sitting in the vehicle licensing database whose licences had expired for more than two years without exemptions. This is not only unnecessary, but unacceptable. The responsible motorists should simply have renewed their licences or obtained exemptions on time. The affected motoring public, therefore, should urgently regularise their vehicle licences.
