Minister of Transport and Communications Kapembwa Simbao has with immediate effect lifted the suspension of operating licenses for WADA CHOVU, Mazhandu Family Bus Services and Mr Aubrey Membe Bus Services.
The Road Transport and Safety Agency RTSA on Monday suspended operating for three bus operators for one month effective April 21, 2016.
But Mr Simbao says the decision to lift the suspension follows the representation from bus operators.
The minister has since called for a meeting with RTSA and the association of bus operators at his office to discuss measures that should be put in place to mitigate road traffic accidents.
Mr Simbao has also send his condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the recent road traffic accidents involving Mazhandu, Wada Chovu and Mr Aubrey Membe Bus Services.
Meanwhile Wada Chovu Transport proprietor Charles Kabamba has said the lifting of suspension of his Buses operating licence by the Minister of Transport Kapembwa Simbao is a relief to his transport company.
Mr Kabamba has told The Independent Observer in an interview that Wada Chovu did not deserve to be treated the way the Road Safety and Transport Agency (RTSA) had opted to handle the matter.
RTSA had slapped Wada Chovu and Mazhandu Family Buses with one month suspension and Aubrey Mmembe Bus Services with three months suspension for road accidents which had happened in along Great North Road.
Mr Kabamba said when one person error it was not reason enough to believe that all had erred.
He said the suspension was like punishment to his transport firm.
Mr Simbao lifted the suspension of operating licenses for WADA CHOVU, Mazhandu Bus Services and Mr Aubrey Membe’s Bus Services.
The Minister has since called for a meeting with Bus operators and RTSA.
