Harare. (News of the South) – Passengers Association of Zimbabwe has insisted on government to enforce Statutory Instrument Number 64 of 2016 which controls importation of second-hand tyres to reduce road accidents in Zimbabwe.

This follows an accident that occurred yesterday in Marondera where four people died with 11 others left injured when a Nissan Caravan commuter omnibus they were travelling in from Marondera to Harare had a tyre burst, veered off the road and overturned.

In a statement today, PAZ President Tafadzwa George Goliath said government must review and enforce the law that controls the importation of second-hand tyres in the country as this has caused many accidents in Zimbabwe.

“We request that Statutory Instrument Number 64 of 2016 which also controls importation of second-hand tyres be enforced.

“We have observed that second hand tyres are being sold all over the place, with their prices ranging from $20 to $30. Government must clarify whether there is a ban on the selling of second hand tyres or not.

He said unroadworthy kombis and buses should be banned to reduce cases of accidents in Zimbabwe.

“Law enforcement agencies should remove unroadworthy vehicles including those that have worn out tyres.

Goliath said “owners of passenger service vehicles should ensure that
their kombis and buses are road worthy and police and the vehicle inspection department (VID) must be strict” he said.
