MOAM ASKS MALAWI POLICE TO ARREST MINIBUS CALL BOYS

Minibus Owners Association of Malawi (MOAM) has appealed to law enforcers in the country to apprehend the call boys time and again without being reminded, saying they still pose a threat to the security of passengers.

In an interview with Malawi News Agency (MANA) MOAM Spokesperson, Coxley Kamange, emphasized on the need to control minibus terminals and transit points in order to bring sanity.

Kamange deplored the tendency of some minibus drivers and their assistants who quarrel with and display their demeaning attitudes towards passengers saying the behaviour is against the law and warned those in the habit to refrain from it.

The Road Traffic Act of 2004 stipulates that harassing a passenger or vice-versa is an offence punishable by law.

In a separate interview, Deputy Public Relations Officer for Central Region Police, Foster Benjamin, said the police have not relaxed on enforcement of the laws, stressing that touting is illegal.

One of the passengers, Deborah Phiri, concurred with Kamange that call boys harass and sometimes rob the passengers, hence the need for them to be removed.
