The minister has said his office is aware of those plans by some drivers, saying the move is calculated to cause discord in the transport sector.
“It has come to my attention that some truck drivers who are sowing seeds of discord in the transport sector are calling on fellow drivers to conduct a work stoppage on 19th October2020,” he said.
Mr Kafwaya, who is also Lunte member of parliament, has since warned both drivers and transport operators to stop plotting illegal activities.
He says the law is clear about how strikes can be conducted.
The minister has charged that government will not allow individuals to sabotage the operations of the transport sector and has challenged the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) to look into the provisions of the law and deal with those that want to strike.
He has warned that once the strike goes ahead, police will handle the matter.
“There will be no illegal work stoppage on the 19th of October and should the law breakers go ahead on this date, Police will deal with those who will conduct an illegal work stoppage,” he said.
