NATIONAL Railways of Zimbabwe should not penalise students for boarding the train without tickets.
Boarders close school and have to travel home on the same day. By the time they get into town the ticket office would have closed. They have no choice but to board the train and buy the tickets on the train.
For example a journey from Mutare to Harare which costs $335 billion in the economy class will cost double the amount which comes to $670 billion. Canâ€™t students in uniforms be excused from this punitive measure?
Would the NRZ also consider extra coaches specifically for students on closing days?
