This comes after the transport operators declared on Monday that they will be going on a week-long protest against the mobile court starting from Wednesday.
The mobile traffic court was introduced in June to try traffic offences on the spot and reduce the huge back lock of traffic cases at the Magistrates’ Courts. The court has been roundly condemned by motorists across the country.
Among other things, public transport operators request that the traffic mobile court, with its draconian rules be removed from local roads because it is also not legal.
Operators accused government of disrespect in that there was never any formal communication, informing them about the suspension.
As a result, they say they will continue with their stay-away until government finds it necessary to approach them for talks.
“We only heard about this suspension on radio. Nothing has been communicated to us so far and we see that as nothing but pure disrespect. We are the ones complaining here, so if there are any developments, they should come to us for such engagements.
