Minibus Owners Association of Malawi (Moam) says it will soon start issuing identification cards both for minibus drivers and conductors as a way of enhancing sanity among them.
Moam will also be producing reflector jackets to replace the uniform which was abandoned three years ago.
“We want to comply with the Road Traffic Act, hence the idea of reflector jackets and IDs. Most drivers did not like the previous uniform, the material was no good,” Moam General Secretary Coxley Kamange told Nyasa Times.
“We should have started way back but were put off by unvailability of forex,” he said.
Kamange noted that previously it was difficult for passengers to know the real driver as the uniform could be exchanged between the driver and the conductor.
“Drivers and conductors will be having IDs and passengers will be allowed to see the IDs,” said Kamange.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
