The National Transport Drivers’ Association has earmarked a familiarisation and interactive meeting with Mr. Oliver Chidawu, the Minister of Harare Metropolitan Province.
Mrs Jotina Matanhire, the President of NTDA encouraged members of her organisation based in Harare to inculcate the culture and moral template of being law-abiding citizens with special focus on the commuting public and the transport sector.
She made the remarks during the NTDA training workshop where drivers and commuters were in attendance.
“As NTDA, we are on the right path and vision to professionalise the transport industry in tandem with the national development agenda of creating employment. We urge everyone in this industry to realise that it has potential for employment creation as the sector engages those who complement the provision of commuting services to the people,” Mrs Matanhire said.
Mrs Matanhire called on transport operators to work and operate within the confines of the law and abscond from using undesignated pick up and drop off points. She urged NTDA members to cooperate with law enforcement agents to improve orderliness in Harare Central Business District.
For the arrangement to work well, NTDA proposes a familiarisation and interactive meeting with the Minister of State for Harare Metropolitan Province.
Reverend Sam Malunga, the NTDA public relations and media coordinator urged representatives of the kombi, taxi and long distance transport sector as well as the general commuting public to comply and adhere to by city by-laws in their provision of services to the metropolitan province.
