DRIVEMOZ: GOOD NEWS

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - NEWS -

Last month I vented about the cor­rup­tion in Botswana and Zim­babwe – and I’m afraid I still feel the same. But here’s a bit of good news. DriveMoz is a so­cial me­dia com­mu­nity ini­tia­tive that aims to as­sist peo­ple trav­el­ling to Mozam­bique. This in­cludes help with pre-trip pa­per­work, rules and reg­u­la­tions, point­ers about border posts and, most im­por­tantly, as­sis­tance when a po­lice of­fi­cer at­tempts to so­licit a bribe. You get a DriveMoz sticker and con­tact num­bers, and when a po­lice of­fi­cer starts giv­ing you has­sles, you can call a num­ber and you’ll re­ceive as­sis­tance from some­one who speaks Por­tuguese. Those in the know say that, as soon as the of­fi­cers see that sticker on your ve­hi­cle, they rather wave you on. Check it out at face­book.com/groups/DriveMoz.
