Controversial road towing levy to be implemented by Sep 1

The Roads and Transport Committee of Parliament has given the green light for the implementation of the compulsory towing levy, beginning September 1, 2017.

According to the chairman of the committee, Mr Samuel Ayeh Paye, the decision was arrived at after consultations with stakeholders in the road and transport industry.

It followed the referral of the Legislative Instrument (L.I.) to the committee by the Transport Ministry after its proposed implementation was met with opposition from the public.Our recommendation is that it is a very good project, we have looked at other stakeholders and in fact they don’t have the capacity to undertake this project. …We have asked the operator as part of our recommendation to absorb other small towing trucks in the contract so that other private and small towing truck services will not be affected or have their businesses collapsed,” he stated.

Mr Ayeh Paye has therefore advised the Ministry to sensitise the public on the L.I. before its implementation.
