Zupco kombis have come to towns and cities

If you can not beat them join them goes the legendary saying. Very true with kombi operators who are now literally stepping on each other's toes queueing to join the Zupco franchise. There is a lot of pushing and shoving in case the door is shut and one loses out.

Zupco is the in-thing with commuters punching the air with excitement. The fares are wallet friendly and the conductors 'came from the people', very humble and ever willing to assist.

Foul mouthed 'whindis' will soon find themselves back at the infamous bridges drinking the devil knows what. Fleecing the commuting public in the name of maximising can never be sound and ethical business practice.

These are poor people trying to make ends meet in these trying times, why charge them extortionate fares? Anyway, Zupco kombis have come to towns, the 'crying' will get less louder, a sniff, a sob then a smile and a giggle.

Authorities must flood the country with Zupco buses and Zupco kombis, reaching far out in Chidodo and Nkayi areas. It is prudent that the Zupco network spreads before onset of rains when uncouth transport operators double or treble fares.

In Mash. Central we need Zupco kombis on the Harare-Bare-Chaona busy route. Also on the Glendale, Nzvimbo-Chinehasha-Chideu route. Our wonderful farming communities are a travelling lot who need affordable transport manned by friendly crews.

Tondo Murisa. Chinehasha.
