The decision to resume operations follows engagements by members of community, North-West Province Minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu who hails from that area and ZRL management.
Mr Mubukwanu said ZRL management’s decision to resume operations of the Mulobezi train came after numerous complaints which were raised during his recent visit to the district.
“As a result of the foregoing, the Mulobezi passenger train will be expected to resume the service between Livingstone and Mulobezi on Tuesday 15th September 2020,” he said.
Mr Mubukwanu however said that the continuation of the train service was highly dependent on the people’s cooperation in observing public health guidelines for combating Covid-19.
“Your total cooperation with Zambia Railways Ltd is essential. Official details will follow but meanwhile inform the other members of the community about this development,” he said.
He said Government was desirous to continue providing such services even during difficult times especially under the new normal.
Zambia Railways Limited spokesperson Caristo Chitamfya was not available for a comment as his phone went unanswered.
