Govt working on areas to relocate Kombis in Harare

Minister of Transport Infrastructural Development Jorum Gumbo has said the government working with the city of Harare are currently seized with the work of preparing areas where they will relocate commuters omnibuses from the city as the city has been so much congested.

Gumbo made the remarks in parliament on Tuesday.

"It is true that Harare needs to be decongested. The Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing working together with the City of Harare are planning to decongest Harare. In the past week or so they have tried to do that and found that it was premature to have done so because other logistics had not been attended to. At the moment, I think City of Harare is working on areas where the pickup points are going to be located. When those places are in shape, the City of Harare, working together with Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing will make sure that people are dropped outside the city centre and only the vehicles that will be licensed to come into the city will be allowed to ferry people in and out of the CBD. Those logistics are being worked on," Gumbo said.

"Also, it is not fair for us and Government and City of Harare to just say let us not have "mishikashikas" or kombis when we have not arranged for alternative transport system to cater for our people as they travel in and outside Harare. The City of Harare and the Ministry of Local Government are working on the logistics of decongesting the city as we speak."
