Minibus drivers protesting in Lilongwe

23

Despite calls that minibus operators should not demonstrate, the authorities’ pleas have hit a snag following demonstrations in some parts of Malawi capital, Lilongwe by minibus operators.

Minibus operators at Area 23 among others are protesting despite agreement of Lilongwe Minibus Owners Association and Minibus Owners Association of Malawi (MOAM) to call off the protests.

The minibus operators at Area 23 took to the streets protesting against the new rules but the situation was cooled off by police officers.

Meanwhile, there are no minibuses available at Area 23 since all minibuses have been dispersed by police officers.

Commuters were seen boarding open vehicles to go to town.

The situation has posed a threat to passengers who board minibuses to Lilongwe town.

Last week, minibus operators in Blantyre and Mzuzu also took to the streets against new rules imposed against them.

Recently, the Malawi Human Rights Consultative Committee (MHRCC) faulted riots by minibus drivers and conductors who were protesting against implementation of the new road laws in the country.

  1. Just chase them with teargass anthu asanyamulidwe ngati ndi mandazi kapena matumba amtedza ena mumanyanya kuika zimatumba ndi kunsi ku mipando yomwe nde anthu akakhala aziponda pati?

  2. They can protest but they must have strategy. Ask RSA taxi drivers. If they strike they stand together come rain or sun. They close main roads with taxis. They are not cowards. They strike once and their fine are erased. They must ask them how to strike.

  3. As I was taking shower with my wife, someone knocked the door, I sent my wife to go and check. She just cover herself with a bathing towel, when she arrived there, she found my friend John holding K10000.00 in his hand. So he romanced my wife and asked her to remove her towel so that he can give her that K10000.00 and she did. He took a minute longer stirling at her touching her and he left. Now I shouted from the shower.. “Darling ! Is that John a friend of mine out there ? She replied, Yes Darling,
    And I said tell him to give youK10000.00 the money he borrowed from me, I’m still busy.
