The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has partially lifted the suspension on the Road Service Licence for Scorpion Buses.

RTSA Head of Public Relations Frederick Mubanga says the partial lifting is restricted to only FIVE buses that passed inspection tests and installed with Global Position System -GPS- devices.

Mr. Mubanga says the agency also carried out a re-test of eight drivers that passed the exercise.

He said the partial lifting of the license follows the operators meeting part of the conditions set by the agency to uplift the road safety profile of Scorpion Bus.

Mr. Mubanga however said in a statement that RTSA will revoke the operator’s licence if they abrogate the conditions of the partial lifting of the suspension.

On April 17, 2019, a Scorpion Bus was involved in an accident which claimed 14 lives on the Chingola-Solwezi road and this prompted RTSA to suspend the operator’s Licence.

    • What will they do with them even with video evidence …when licences can not be suspended for lost lives to due negligence of the operator…who let a driver without papers drive the bus. We need consistent laws not cases looked at by corrupt RTSA Directors like Soko who even give you 14 days to think of what to say to them …RTSA should be persecuting Bus owners and shareholders in courts not these soft charges.

  1. I guess this is why DEC and ACC are investigating Soko. Too many lifts of bans on suspended licenses, either the owners of the bus companies are him politicians using to arm twist him into lifting suspensions or they are directly giving him bribes.

  2. This agency is a joke …lost lives mean nothing to them and to add insult you have that corrupt moron Soko at the helm. Lawyers should be gathering the families of lost passengers and suing the pants of these companies for negligence till they are out of business.
