ZINARA tightens screws on government vehicles exemptions

By Staff Writer

THE Zimbabwe National Road Administration (Zinara) says it is regulating the exemption of government vehicles after it emerged that the waivers were open to abuse.

Reports indicate that some individuals were abusing the exemption permits when importing cars for resale in the country.

Speaking during its seventh annual general meeting this week, Zinara chief executive officer Nkosinathi Ncube said they were collaborating with the parent ministry on solution to halt the abuse of the facility.

“We are working with the parent ministry (Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development) to regulate the exemption for government vehicles. We will also be getting feedback from the ministry on that issue,” Nkosinathi said.

He said Zinara was also making efforts to make toll fees more affordable.

“We have been working with our parent ministry and the Finance ministry to make the toll fees viable. We do understand the impact of the toll fees on the general cost of living, but our responsibility is to make sure that we collect responsibly and disburse to the road authority so that the public who pay these fees are able to see the positive impact. We believe that the toll fees are now commercially viable for the benefits of motorists,” the Zinara boss said.
