Minister for Transport Wesly Nukudj is warning all PMV operators in NCD to refrain from going on strike or his department and the transport sector will take further action.
Mr Nukudj said the strike was unauthorised and all public motor vehicles (PMV’s) in the city are to know that this is going to be the first and last in the city.
Mr Nukudj urged all PMV bus owners and operators to continue their normal PMV services today, to provide the much needed service to the people.
He questioned that if there was an issue with only one bus, then what was the point for all the PMVs to go on strike.
“If the strike continues and people, especially students, continue to suffer from this unauthorised bus strike, then all PMV operators licenses will be removed, and I will make sure this will happen,” said Mr Nukudj.
“We have bigger events coming up such as the APEC and grade 12 national exams, and PMV services must be provided at all times.”
Meanwhile, Road Traffic Authority (RTA) chief executive officer Nelson Terema has also called on all PMV operators to refrain from the unauthorised bus strike.
