By Vision Reporter A Money-hungry driver was forced to leave his conductor and a passenger behind as two taxis raced on Gayaza Road. The incident happened in the afternoon of July 29 as the almost-empty taxis that defied the norm of loading passengers in Gayaza taxi park combed roads and paths in search of elusive passengers. There was a stiff competition for passengers at each stage which heightened drama, as they drove bumper to bumper even overtaking each other at sharp bends such as the just ahead of Uganda Clays. Real drama ensued when the taxi stopped to wait for a limping passenger who was way off the road. The taxis suddenly screeched to a halt almost in the middle of the road opposite Mafuta Petrol Station and in a matter of seconds, both conductors jumped out to lure the passenger into their respective cabs. However, two probable passengers emerged just 50 metres ahead, prompting one driver called ‘Tabliq’ to zoom ahead. He went on and on for over half a kilometre, picking passengers, before reversing to pick the conductor and the lone passenger. He took insults from passengers lightly because in that endeavour, he managed to fill the taxi. He even had the audacity of advising his conductor to act like a ‘Charlie’ next time, if he dreams of pleasing his bosses The rival taxi was found at Mpererwe stage parked as it waited for passengers going to Kampala.
