Rudeboys of the road: commuter taxi conductors in Zimbabwe

Facebook logoTwitter logoForward logo

In many, if not all, African countries, people move around in commuter taxis. In Kenya they are called matattu, in Uganda they are known as bodabodas, and in Zimbabwe people hop into an imtshova or a mchova. Many people complain about the rude behaviour and bad manners of taxi conductors, who collect fares and help passengers on and off the vehicle.

In this week's edition of Speak Up, we speak to young people in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe about commuter taxi conductors, and we ask the conductors themselves what they think of their reputation.

Speak UP! is an audio show in which young Africans discuss thorny social issues without pulling any punches. It is created by a selection of young hosts and producers in Zimbabwe, South Sudan, Rwanda, Nigeria and Kenya, working in partnership with local media organizations and RNW. Each edition of Speak UP! provides YOU with a chance to express yourself – because everybody wants to be heard.

If there’s a topic you’d like to speak up about, get in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter!
