ZIMBABWE National Road Administration (ZINARA) will hike tollgate fees with effect from Monday as Zimbabweans plan to travel for the festive season.

“In terms of Section 4 of the SI 32 of 202, toll fees which are pegged in foreign currency are payable in local currency at the prevailing foreign currency auction rate,” the state entity said in a statement.

“Pursuant to that, the motoring public is advised that with effect from December 20, 2021, the following toll fees will apply: light motor vehicles ZW$220  or  US$2  payable in foreign currency auction rate. Mini-buses will now pay ZW$330 (US$3), buses will have to pay ZW$440  (US$4) while heavy trucks toll fees are now ZW$550 (US$5), haulage trucks toll fees have been pegged at ZW$1 100 (US$10).”

Early this month, the parliamentary portfolio committee on transport raised concerns on the tollgates’ poor infrastructure and congestion due to delays in servicing motorists.

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) chairperson Loice Matanda -Moyo also revealed this month that ZINARA was one of the most corrupt government departments and law enforcement agencies were monitoring its employees.
