Minibus Owners Challenge Passengers on Their Safety

Date:

Minibus Owners Association of Malawi (MOAM) has challenged people who use public transport to safeguard their own safety in the wake of the global pandemic Coronavirus.

The call has been following the new sanctioned seating capacity which is requiring 2 people per seat as a way of maintain social distance to halt the spread of the virus.

According to Felix Mbonekera, MOAM’s spokesperson, passengers should be the ones looking out for their safety by ensuring that minibus drivers are not abusing them by ignoring the sanctioned seating capacity.

“It is not only about us, but passengers should make sure they are not abused by our drivers. Their safety is also in their hands,” said Mbonekera.

Mbonekera further warned drivers and owners against taking advantage of passengers.

“Some passengers don’t say a word, but this should not be an advantage to abuse them. If found, such drivers will face the wrath of the association,” he warned.

Meanwhile, Mbonekera has disclosed that the MOAM executive will meet to alter fares in line with the new expected capacity.

Before the cases of coronavirus started to spike again there was a laxity from both passengers and minibus drivers as they were having three passengers per seat.
