Vanuatu to ban govt workers from operating public transport

Vanuatu's Minister of Home Affairs Andrew Napuat has warned all public servants against operating or owning any public transport vehicle.

Andrew Napuat has asked the chief executive of the Port Vila Land Transport Authority to cancel public servants' memberships to allow those who are unemployed to get involved in the industry.

The Minister said he intended to introduce legislation banning public servants as well as tour companies from owning a bus or a taxi.
