Mzuzu minibus touts given up to April 1 to leave or face arrest

Call boys in Mzuzu City have been given up to April 1 to leave bus terminals or face arrest following a spate of thefts.

Touts  who solicit passengers continue to plague the various minibus parks in the city much to the distaste of the travelling public.

Touts who solicit passengers continue to plague the various minibus parks in the city much to the distaste of the travelling public.

Mzuzu City chief executive officer Macloud Kadammanja said the council will involve the police and bus owners to take out the touts if they fail to observe the deadline of April 1,2016.

“We have received a number of complaints as regards to thefts in bus terminals and we have established this is mainly done by these call boys,” he said.

He said after all, touting in Malawi is illegal.

“Rights of passengers must be protected,” said the chief executive officer.

The council and the police have also been waging another battle with the kabaza, bicycle tax operators blamed for some accidents in the tiny city.

Authorities in Blantyre and Lilongwe have failed to root up the call boys.

Don’t waste our taxes on things u can’t accomplish. Last time u promoted 3 passengers on a sit, and minibus drivers and conductors to be on uniform. U did it for the first few months where is it now. Is this not waste of scarce resources. Malawian authorities wise up (siyani kugona).

@1.1 It is not the responsibility of govt to find them something to do. Already what they are doing is illegal. These boys are criminals They will find something to do. Let them go home and till the land.

True, get rid of these useless and dangerous criminals. They are a thorn in the fresh when you are travelling to a taxi rank or a bus terminal.
