Popular Democratic Movement Member of Parliament, Johannes Martin, says the harassment of innocent travellers at taxi ranks and bus terminals by operators is a matter of concern that needs urgent attention. Martin told the Namibia press agency that travellers at times suffer bodily injuries, loss or damage of their belongings, and go through emotional trauma as they are grabbed and even insulted by those loading the buses and even sometimes the drivers themselves. He added that his efforts to engage the Namibia Bus and Taxi Association have failed as their representatives are always busy but when approached for comment by Nampa the NABTA secretary-general said the association has always discouraged its members from unbecoming behaviour at bus and taxi terminals and on public roads.
