  5. Every one have a right todo busines otherwise maybe the police must clarify the policies to follow but not to stop kabaza its acheap and quick transport especialy in our locations

  6. You can not scrape kabaza transport outright. This is a cheap form of transport even to the low, middle and sometimes the upper working class apart from the general travelling public. What the authorities should do is to regulate this form of transportation. There are developed economies like India, Kenya where I have been to and other countries where the bicycle is still being used as a most dependable form of transport. You see kabaza has in a way alleviated the massive unemployment in our country and there are unspeakable benefits accruing to most Malawian house holds from this enterprise. I think there’s nothing illegal to engage oneself in this business but perhaps government has to come in to regularise same by introducing road tax for example, wearing of helmets, bicycle inspection exercises, passenger and goods carrying capacity regulations etc etc but let this trade flourish

    • ndimafunisisa nditasusana nawe komano nditafunsa nzeru pa za mitengo yathu ya ya transort muno malawi ndapezadi kt kabanza is the cheapest transport ever in malawi.wat usually happens is that its like we hire the bicycle kutitengera ku malo aku mtima kwathu.i agree with u interms of cost.
