Zimbabwe National Organisation of Associations and Residents Trusts (ZNOART) notes a disturbing video circulating where bus operators, hwindis or conductors are abusing and insulting a woman passenger at a local bus station. This is very disturbing and as ZNOART we condemn this in the strongest terms.
As residents and passengers, we demand that police arrest these culprits immediately. In a modern society where passengers have freedom of choice and women carry the society’s future, such kind of behaviour has no place.
We have noticed these abuses happening at every bus station across all the cities countrywide. These abuses also include verbal abuses especially to defenceless women, resulting in vulgar language being thrown around the termini and in the process leading to cultural erosion. Such abuses must stop.
ZRP in collaboration with council police must act NOW towards making the bus termini user friendly. This can only be done through arresting touts thereby reducing touting within the vicinity of bus termini in order to promote sanity.
We also call upon local councils to be in full control of their bus termini. Further to that, the councils must refurbish bus terminuses which are largely in a dilapidated state.
WE CALL FOR JUSTICE FOR OUR PASSENGERS ESPECIALLY OUR WOMEN
