Bulawayo Commuters Stranded As ZUPCO Buses & Kombies Fail To Cope With Demand – Report

Bulawayo commuters are reportedly waiting long hours to board ZUPCO buses and kombies to and from work as ZUPCO is overwhelmed with demand after the president relaxed lockdown restrictions and allowed formal businesses to operate, The Chronicle reports.

When the Chronicle news crew visited the crowded bus terminuses and interviewed commuters, some raised social distancing concerns while some urged the government to return all kombies while some lamented that they had been waiting in the queue for over 4 hours.

Responding to questions about the situation on the ground, ZUPCO CEO Everisto Madangwa said transport operators with valid permits must resume operations and non-essential service providers must stay at home:

There are currently 500 kombis on the scheme countrywide. So we want to increase that number. We are inviting operators to join Zupco. If they want to be on the road, they must have their papers in order, then they must join Zupco as we are still on level two of the lockdown.

Commuters must also heed the call to stay at home if they have no essential business to attend to so that we do not congest our buses and kombis. We are still on lockdown and there are still regulations governing us, we must comply
