Govt officials demand special treatment at toll gates

HARARE - Senior government officials are demanding special treatment at tollgates saying they are not comfortable having their exemption certificates scanned before they pass through.

Instead, the officials want a Number Plate Recognition System (NPRS), which scans their vehicle’s plate numbers as they approach the tollgate and automatically lifts the boom gate to let them through.

“They just want to come and pass with very minimum delay that has been our main reason for pushing for the NPRS,” Intertoll country operations manager Joseph Mafanuke told a parliamentary panel on Transport yesterday.

Why do they want to be exempted in the first place. They want free fuel, free housing and free everything. Zinara needs the revenue. Munhu wese ngaabhadhare toll gate.

They must not only pay the toll fees, these suckers, they must join the queue. What's special about them? Causing misery and strife?
