The Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) and the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) yesterday indicated that they are ready to ferry people from different parts of the country intending to take part in the main anti-sanctions march in Harare on Friday.
ZUPCO said it was ready to release buses throughout the country, while the NRZ indicated that it will run free special passenger trains from Bulawayo and Mutare to Harare.
ZUPCO acting chief executive Mr Everisto Madangwa said they were committed to distribute the buses to ferry people as required.
“We are ready to release our buses for the anti-sanctions campaign programme,” he said.
“This is a national cause, hence the need to fully support the programme. As you are aware, we have a fleet of buses countrywide. We are just waiting to get the number of buses required by the organisers per province. It’s all systems go on our part.”
In a statement, NRZ public relations manager Mr Nyasha Maravanyika said two passenger trains with a capacity to carry 1 500 and 1 200 passengers have been arranged to ferry people to and from Bulawayo and Mutare to Harare for free.State media
