LCC has no running of bus stations – Habeenzu
Lusaka, January 09, 2014, ZANIS…Lusaka City Council (LCC) Assistant Public Relations Manager Mulunda Habeenzu says his Council has no control of bus stops in the City.
Mr. Habeenzu said the LCC instead by law has full control of bus stations throughout Lusaka.
ZANIS reports the LCC Assistant Public Relations saying this in an interview in Lusaka today.
He disclosed that those call boys charging money from bus drivers from bus stops conduct their own private arrangements which is not backed by any law in the country.
He said this following a recent clash involving suspected Patriotic Front (PF) cadres at Mtendere bus stops last night.
He said suspected political cadres who have positioned themselves in bust stops have their own private arrangement with bust drivers, a thing he said it is not backed by any provision of the existing laws of the land.
“The LCC does not control bus stops in Lusaka but only controls bus stations in all parts of Lusaka. Those collecting money from bus drivers in bus stops is their own private arrangements which is not backed by any law”, Mr. Habeenzu said.
Mr Habeenzu said the LCC should not b blamed for any misunderstanding among suspected cadres because there is no law which gives the council the mandate to do so.
