ZVISHAVANE - The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) in the Zvishavane policing district say they will continue with their operation against pirate taxis until total order is achieved.
Speaking during a campaign organised in partnership with Zvishavane Town Council, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) in the traffic section, Assistant Inspector Brighton Nzima said police wanted all cars in the passenger business to be registered.
"As traffic police and the responsible authority of Zvishavane town, we are not going to tolerate any mushikashika in town. The council has allocated you proper pick up points for different destinations.
"Make sure your cars are registered to do the job and make use of the designated pick-up points you have been allocated. Whoever is going to be found wanting in this regard will face the wrath of the law," said Ass Insp Nzima.
The town council has come up with six different pick-up points for passengers from different destinations.
Machipisa was named the official pick-up point for Zvishavane - Rutenga travellers and touts were warned to observe orderliness by not to invading the road to look for passengers.
Macarios was officially pegged as another pick-up point and the necessary signs are set to be put in place.
Number 1 was deemed the most suitable pick-up area for passengers travelling to Mberengwa.
Taxis plying local routes were allocated Madeira as their pick-up point and were urged not to invade the road as it would lead to disorderliness and accidents.local
