GOVERNMENT TO LIFT BAN ON NIGHT TRAVEL FOR PUBLIC BUSES

Transport and Logistics Minister FRANK TAYALI says government will consider lifting the ban on night travel for Public Service Buses in 2024.

Mr. TAYALI, however, says the ban will still remain in force for Trucks. He has told ZNBC News that he will soon table the matter in cabinet.

Mr. TAYALI said lifting the ban on night travel will gradually help to implement the planned 24- hour economy.

Meanwhile, the Transport and Logistics Minister further said about 60 percent of the accidents in the night occur on the Lusaka – Ndola dual carriageway.

Mr. TAYALI however said the concessionaire has made progress on the emergency works.

  1. This is a good move but the government should sit with the bus owners/operators and agree on things like the speed to be used, a phone number of the owner/operator
    and the identity of the driver must be
    displayed somewhere in front just behind the driver so that all passengers can see it and make a complaint/report the driver to the police or the owner of the bus in case
    he misbehaves.

  2. Does this Minister Frank Tayali actually know what he doing? Please ba ND, dont take such reckless and unnecessary risks with people’s lives! You are bloody thirsty vultures when it comes to money – why???? Night accidents were killing people like kapenta and now you want to remove key preventions because of money!!
    What’s wrong with Hichilema? This is pure greed without a heart for the people. We don’t want that kind of foolishness. Ati you want a 24 hour economy which kills people – that is nonsense!!
