88

The action to impound a minibus in Mzuzu city for exceeding passenger limit has pleased Malawians who have applauded Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Grace Chiumia.

Chiumia who also calls herself Obama impounded a minibus in Mzuzu for having four passengers per seat instead of recommended three on each seat.

Grace Chiumia

Malawians happy with Chiumia for impounding a minibus.

The action is noted to have made Malawians happy as they have faulted minibus drivers for contravening road traffic laws.

Commenting on a story carried by Malawi24 on Saturday, Malawians applauded Chiumia for impounding the minibus.

“That’s good madam minister we are happy for you,” wrote Maureen Christabel Mackene.

While Patrick Nkhoma wrote: “Obama did well, minibuses are supposed to carry three passengers per seat well done madam.”

Another commenter Gift Mzava faulted the drivers for contravening the law despite hiking minibus charges.

Malawi government took seriously the law of having passengers not exceeding the recommended capacity of minibuses.

This followed an increase of road accidents in the country with dozens of lives being lost.

The introduction of the stiff measures witnessed minibus drivers and conductors rioting but police insisted that they will continue to implement the rules.

  1. What does a blood minister of home affairs has to do with the minibus? I thought the ministry of transportation is responsible for this? Made in Mzuzu

  2. Publicity stunt iyi: How many times will she be doing this? How did 200 passports disappeared under her watch? i hope one day she will catch a thief in the street. I would have praised her if she had apprehended Chaponda and handed him to the police

  5. INDE ANAPANGA CHINTHU CHABWINO KOMA ANTHU AMADANA NDICHABWINO. SHE HAS TO BE CAREFUL, IF SOMEONE FEELS PAIN WHEN HE/SHE RESPONDS. IT WAS NOT HEALTH FOR THE HONOURABLE TO DO WHAT SHE DID. SHE COULD HAVE USED DUNDUZU ROADBLOCK OR LUWINGA POLICE UNIT.

  6. Surely this must be done by all those people in authority. This is for purpose of safety. Safety and health for all citizens is one of priorities to nation building. Law and orderly conduct of citizens is important in any nation as first step to peace and calm.

  7. she was supposed to punish the mini bus driver, not the owner of the mini bus… that action will cost government money if it continues… minibus drivers get driving licences from Road Traffic, not from bus owners…. kuwa shosha ma lawsuits kumeneko…

  10. She is leading by example. Ministers, just like all other politicians, are supposed to be servants, not bosses who give orders without monitoring whether the orders are being followed or not. Sitikufuna ma minister omangokhala phwii mu ofesi thinking kt everything is alright…
