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