Dozens of pirate taxis impounded as police launch ‘Operation Chishika-shika Chapera’


Police in Gweru have launched an operation code-named “Chishika-Shika Chapera” targeting pirate taxis and kombis.

Pirate taxi operators have been taking advantage of transport shortages of late due to Covid-19 lockdown regulations to ply several routes, including the banned inter-city travel.

This morning, dozens of pirate taxis had been impounded and Gweru Central Police Station had run out of space, with the police taking other impounded taxis and kombis to either Mtapa or Mkoba 1 police stations.
