By A Correspondent-Selfish cross border, bus operators are placing the lives of many at risk as they continue to smuggle travellers to and from South Africa.
One of these buses is Enno Coaches, which continues to dump passengers in Musina after robbing them of their money.
Enno Coaches charge US$200 to smuggle passengers to Johannesburg a destination the bus never reaches. Besides robing desperate travellers of their hard-earned cash, the bus is also putting the same at a higher risk of contracting Covid-19 through not observing social distancing in their packed buses.
What Enno Coaches and other unethical bus operators are doing is in direct violation of Covid-19 lockdown regulations which prohibit inter-city and cross border travel.
The sad development is threatening to derail the country’s efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus. The third wave of the pandemic has seen soaring deaths and infections.
On Thursday, Zimbabwe had 105 656 confirmed cases and 3 421 deaths.
There were 81 fatalities on that particular day.
