THE Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (Zupco) in Bulawayo is giving passengers a hard time by rejecting worn and old United States dollar and rand notes despite published notices warning against the practice.

Zupco started charging fares in foreign currency alongside local currency in February.

Commuters have been paying R10 or US$1 for kombis while buses were charging R5 or US$1 for two passengers per trip. The same trips cost about $50 and $30 for kombis and buses respectively.

One of the conductors, who asked to remain unidentified said their managers refused to cash old and torn notes.

Zupco southern region manager Tineyi Ruswako referred this publication to the chief executive officer Evaristo Madangwa when contacted for comment. Madangwa was not answering his mobile phone.
