Traditional leaders are up in arms with the Zimbabwe National Road Administration over payment of toll fees.
Zinara this year resolved to exempt only vehicles that were allocated to traditional leaders by Government from paying toll fees, when using any other vehicles other than the ones allocated by Government.
In a letter to the Secretary for Local Government and Public Works Mr Zvinechimwe Churu, Zinara acting chief executive officer Engineer Moses Chigonyati noted that the change in arrangement is an effort to curb abuse of exemptions by traditional leaders.
However, president of the Chief’s council Chief Fortune Charumbira says chiefs consider the notice as a violation of their rights as traditional leaders are historically considered the “owners” of the land.
