PRESSER: PASSENGERS BEWARE OF CRIMINALS OPERATION USING PIRATE TAXIS
Passengers Association of Zimbabwe in partnership with the Insurance Council of Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwe Passenger Transport of Zimbabwe are carrying out a campaign highlighting that commuters must desist from boarding pirate taxis, commonly known as Mishikashika- and private vehicles, throughout Harare City at termini and illegal pick up points.
Zimbabwe Republic Police, Harare Province public relations and Environment Management Authority will also educate the commuters.
The campaign aims to promote passenger safety and rights. Firstly, it seeks to change commuters mindsets, so that they can understand that they should consistently travel using registered passenger service vehicles.
This is an innovative approach that aims to uproot the endemic robbing, raping and killing of passengers who would have innocently and unsuspectingly boarded vehicles operated by pirates on our roads and highways.
This campaign also seeks to promote environment sustainability by encouraging passengers to stop littering as this affects the ecosystem and creates an eyesore. This will be done with EMA.
This campaign engages all stakeholders to create a present and future that enables us to travel according to our expectations and safely whilst maintaining our travel environment accordingly.
