” In enforcing the Government’s COVID-19 regulations on transporters, the Zimbabwe Republic Police will ensure that company and school-owned buses which have the requisite documents, proof of ownership and all relevant registration processes are allowed passage at roadblocks and checkpoints.

The police will only impound public service vehicles such as kombis or buses which are carrying passengers whilst they are not registered under the ZUPCO franchise.  Police officers are fully aware of this position.

Private taxis and mushikashika vehicles will be impounded by the Police and there is no going back on this stance for public safety.

Companies and schools which intend to hire kombis or buses which are not under the ZUPCO franchise to transport workers should first seek clearance from the relevant Ministry and ZUPCO. This will assist law enforcement officers in the maintenance of law and order on the roads , ” said Assistant Commissioner Nyathi.
