Kombi conductors turn to gold panning

The Covid-19 pandemic saw the government introducing drastic measures meant to protect the general citizens of the country with one of these being the consolidation of all public transport under the Zimbabwe United Passenger Company.

The development saw commuter omnibus conductors popularly known as ‘owindi’ losing their jobs.

This has seen most of the kombi conductors resorting to illegal gold panning with most going to Matopo and Inyathi areas in search of the precious mineral, a move that has been described by life coaches to be the consequence of not professionalising their craft.
