150 000 cars face de-registration
MORE than 150 000 vehicles whose owners failed to renew their licences for two years as of July 31 this year face de-registration once the notice has been published in the Government Gazette, Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Joel Biggie Matiza has said.
Once a vehicle is de-registered, technically it becomes valueless as the owner would lose valid title to it. To re-register the car, one has to pay outstanding arrears and penalties owed, including insurance and get clearance from the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority that the vehicle was legally imported into the country. Further, the car has to be cleared by the Vehicle Theft Squad and the Vehicle Inspection Department before it can ply the country’s roads again. – The Herald
