NRZ has announced it will bring back the passenger train soon, to help commuters that are having problems commuting since public transport is banned because of the lockdown, the Chronicle reports.
This was revealed by Transport minister Cde Joel Biggie Matiza while briefing journalists in Bulawayo when he said:
There is a lot that needs to be done in terms of ensuring that the trains are safe and that issues such as social distancing are implemented in our trains. That is why services were temporarily suspended. However, the trains are coming back and commuters will be relieved soon
Matiza also said they were aware of the transport crisis and were working hard to resolve the problem:
We are aware of the transport crisis hence measures to open up the Zupco franchise to more players. We are reviewing the measures that have been put in place as we go, as we are also monitoring the Covid-19 crisis. We have not yet fully opened as we are still under lockdown
