Free ZUPCO Transport For Traditional Leaders

Free ZUPCO Transport For Traditional Leaders

Traditional leaders will no longer have to pay transport fares when they board Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) buses in all parts of the country.

This was revealed by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga while addressing mourners at the homestead of the late Chief Nhlamba in Gwanda on Friday. He said:

Traditional leaders will not have to pay transport fares on ZUPCO buses starting tomorrow (today).

Our chiefs are the custodians of our culture and owners of this soil.

Chiwenga made the announcement in response to Headman Dubane who had said that private transport operators do not require traditional leaders to pay bus fares yet ZUPCO was demanding that they pay. He said:

We’re optimistic that all that we’ve been promised will come. We’re lucky to have the Vice-President in our midst and we can highlight our challenges such as that of Zupco demanding that traditional leaders pay transport fares.

Green Horse and other private transport operators don’t demand transport fares from us, unlike ZUPCO.

Chief Nhlamba, born Dennis Ndlovu, died last weekend after a long illness at the age of 75.

He was granted a State-assisted burial and will be laid to rest at his rural home in Garanyemba this Saturday.

Chief Nhlamba was installed on 16 July 2010 and was on the throne for almost 12 years.

It's a shame. These chiefs were given cars, so why do they have to worsen the pressure already there. Zvemahara zvodiwa. Kuda kubatsiridza zanu kuba maElection results. Manje muchafamba netsoka. Zupco racho riri kupera very soon and very quickly. Go fo change. VOTE CCC

Despite that this move of allowing Chiefs to board ZUPCO buses free of charge was initiated by one of the Chiefs who was also attending funeral, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga grabbed the opportunity and started campaigning. Noone will loose sleep over these tactics. In fact they should have done this a long time ago. "APA VAINGE VARARA NE ZAMU MUKANWA".
