Private taxis and commuter operators in Masvingo province are calling on government to allow them to pirate for them to sustain their livelihoods.

They say that life has become difficult for them as they are being harassed by law enforcement agencies.

“We are appealing to government to allow us to work as we are struggling during these hard times.Police are harrasing us and some are demanding bribes to allow us to be on the road.We appeal to government to come up with a clear policy on how we are going to operate,”said the private transporters.
A survey carried out by Hevoi FM News has revealed that residents in Masvingo are having problems in getting into town in the morning as ZUPCO kombis are failing to cope with the demand resulting in them having to use alternative transport.
Since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic in 2020, only ZUPCO registered buses and minibuses have been allowed to transport commuters. However, a national shortage of buses in rural and urban routes has seen commuters queue for hours to get from one destination to the other.
