"We're Going To Clean The Rot," Transport Minister After Touring CVR

Transport Minister Felix Mhona has vowed to end corruption at the Central Vehicle Registry (CVR) which he said also contributed to the scarcity of vehicle number plates.

He made the remarks after touring the government department at the backdrop of a huge deficit in vehicle number plates. Pindula News presents Mhona’s statement issued after his tour of the CVR:

Corruption has no place in the Second Republic. We are going to clean the rot at CVR and bring a new work ethic to the institution. No one should struggle to acquire number plates

Today I visited the CVR to understand why people are failing to get number plates on time. As the Second Republic, we are saying we have enough plates in stock and no one should pay extra money to get them.

I am concerned that some motorists who applied for number plates last year are yet to receive them, but some who applied recently already have the number plates. We are going to decisively deal with this issue. 

He posted a pile of plates which to some was a suggestion that “some corrupt officials at CVR were withholding them so that desperate motorists would pay bribes.”

There have been calls for the culprits to face the wrath of the law. Among those who want action to be taken is former Energy Minister, Advocate Fortune Chasi who commended Mhona’s deeds. He said:

Well done Minister. That’s the correct way to do things. The corruption there is nauseating. Crooks linger outside and connive with officers inside. Some inside there must be quirking in their shoes.

He added that the public should not be made to suffer.

This is happening as police have launched an operation targeting plateless, unlicensed and unregistered vehicles.

Ministers should not work remotely from their desks, houses, hotels or cars. They should be on the floor. Thanks to the minister for his first day of doing some real work!

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MINISTER MHONA FOR BEING INQUISITIVE AND GOING TO PROBE HOW CVR DEPARTMENT OPERATES.

HOWEVER MINISTER, YOU TOOK THIS INVESTIGATIVE VISIT AFTER YOU HAD BEEN POKED IN YOUR RIBS BY POLICE OPERATION CURRENTLY GOING ON IN WHICH THEY ARE TARGETING NUMBER PLATELESS MOTOR VEHICLES.

NEVERTHELESS MINISTER MHONA, YOU DID WHAT OTHER MINISTERS FAIL TO DO IN 20 YEARS.

ANOTHER THING WHICH I FEEL IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE ROT IS KEEPING MEMBERS AT ONE STATION LONGER THAN NECESSARY. IN THE PAST A GOVERNMENT WORKER STAYED AT THE SAME POSTING FOR NOT MORE THAN 3 YEARS BEFORE BEING TRANSFERED.

THIS METHOD HELPS CUTTING DOWN CORRUPTION IN GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS. THIS IS WORTH IMPLEMENTING BECAUSE OUR PRIORITY IS REDUCING CORRUPTION IN GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS.

{ MINISTER MHONA IS FOR PEOPLE, FOR THE COUNTRY AND FOR THE LAW. WELLDONE MINISTER.

YOURS TRULY

Mr Mhona, thank you for finally unearthing the possible principal cause of the proliferation of unlicensed vehicles on the country's roads. Wouldn't it show a bit of sincerity on the part of government, were you to give a grace period, of say a fortnight or a month, to owners of unlicensed vehicles to acquire licence plates for their cars (assuming you would have managed to bring order to CVR in the shortest possible time e.g. within a week) before proceeding with the currently underway blitz? I am sure you have seen for yourself that not all unlicensed cars belong to people of a criminal disposition!

A matter of putting the cart before the horse. Arresting non plated cars before investigating the cause of backlog. Now that they know that the problem lies with CVR, are they going to return the fines they imposed on non plated motorists. Food for thought
