I do not report to Solomon Jere – RTSA CEO

Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko says he will not report to Deputy Inspector General of Police Solomon Jere following a heated exchange of words the two had over the mounting of road blocks by RTSA to curb cases of drunk driving.

Mr. Soko says this is because by the Act of Parliament which created RTSA only mandates him to report to the Minister of Transport and communication and not to the Deputy Inspector of Police.

Mr. Soko however, says he is ready to attend a meeting with Dr. Jere at a higher level to iron out there professional differences.

Mr. Soko has also maintained that the agency will continue with its patrols as prescribed under the RTSA Act No. 11 of 2002.

Mr. Soko was speaking to Qfm in an interview.
