By SAM PHIRI –
President Edgar Lungu has said Government will continue introducing regulations to curb road accidents.
The President said the ministry of transport and communication was committed to making travelling safe in the country.
In a speech read on his behalf by minister of Transport and communication Brian Mushimba during 2018 Lusaka Happening motor Show event in Lusaka yesterday, the President said government was in the process of applying appropriate technologies such as intelligent transport system to make the driving environment safer and securer.
“I would like to register a concern with the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) that despite the SI that bans night driving of passenger buses, I was shocked to see that some bus operators are still driving beyond 22:00hours,” Mr Mushimba said.
He called on the RTSA chief executive Zindaba Soko and the Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja to ensure the law was kept enforced to avoid loss of lives.
Meanwhile, Mr Mushimba said the Motor Show was a good market place for business to appreciate the innovations and investment aspects which characterised the motor industry.
He said through the motor show platform, the motor industry and business would share ideas on how to meet specific needs for respective business streams.
“This forum will now and going into the future remain a fertile ground for business and the motor industry to co-act to meet mutual felt business needs to benefit all parties,” he said.
During the show, Pilatus emerged as winner of the show with MMI steel on the second position with Danlop scooping the third position.
Winner, Joe Pilatus, thanked the organisers and said it was an honour to receive the first prize at his ripe age.
And RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko said the agency will work tirelessly to make sure the SI that restricts night driving of passenger busses was in full force.
