Police impound ZUPCO buses for violating lockdown rules
Police in Mashonaland’s western province, where several districts are under lockdown, have impounded some pirate taxis and at least nine intercity buses, including two ZUPCO buses, for flouting lockdown regulations.
Drivers of pirate taxis plying the Chinhoyi-Karoi, Chinhoyi-Mhangura, Chinhoyi-Harare and Chinhoyi-Chegutu routes were arrested while the buses were taken to Chinhoyi Central Police Station.
This was revealed by a police officer commanding Mashonaland West (Operations) and Assistant Commissioner Martin Nyirenda while speaking at an emergency Provincial Civil Protection Unit (CPU) meeting attended by representatives from key Government departments. He said:
As police, we are conducting patrols and as we speak, along the Harare-Chirundu highway, we have nine long-distance and intercity buses that have been impounded and are currently at Chinhoyi Central Police Station.
Among these buses include two Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (ZUPCO) buses that were operating intercity routes against COVID-19 regulations. We are not allowing intercity buses across these hotspot districts.
Provincial development coordinator and CPU chairperson, Josphat Jaji, said they have noted with concern that from the COVID-19 fatalities that the province recorded, not all people were vaccinated.
He pleaded with provincial heads to lead by example by taking the jab to lessen the severity of the virus.
