Taxi operators in Rundu took to the streets on Friday to protest the bad conditions of the roads in the Kavango East’s capital. Bemoaning the number of potholes, representative, Lukas Shinga, explained to the Namibia press agency that they pay annual motor vehicle taxes for roads that are busy damaging [their] cars which impacts the monthly salary [they can earn]. He said the bad roads not only damage their vehicles but also cause the taxi drivers a lot of discomfort and forces them to park at prohibited areas when picking up customers, resulting in them being fined.
